Fuel Tank, Wheel Wells, Battery Rack - 4x4 Build Ep.13

In this video I'm fabricating a battery box rack so I can use the original (yet modified) plastic battery box to house the battery behind the driver's seat. Why there you may ask... It is due to weight distribution since the engine is located on the passenger side (on the left) and all the weight put on the driver's side will help to balance the vehicle out in addition to my own 100 kg / 220 lbs body weight. I'm also making the wheel wells / mud guards for the rear of the UTV so I'm not getting plastered with mud in the future. Everything has to be compact and roomy at the same time. I don't like to feel cramped when working or maintaining a vehicle. This build will let me do things to my own liking. Now some of you will probably say I'm mad for doing this but I've decided to put the fuel tank near / almost on top of the battery. Well, not really, but they're really close. It's like sitting on a firecracker if for some reason the homemade tank starts to leak for example and the battery is short circuiting at the same time. But no worries! I have a solution for that which I will reveal in a future video. Stay tuned and thanks for watching!

This is part of a series of a four wheel drive utility vehicle build to lessen the work load on my trusty 2002 Honda Foreman Rubicon TRX500FA. This partially answers the question "Why?" but for those who want to ask "why don't you just buy a side-by-side instead of building one?" I just want to say - I'm not made of money. Side-by-sides are ridiculously expensive, even the car I drive around daily is worth less (not worthless though!), hell, it is even worth less than my 2002 Honda ATV.

"How much HP will it have?" - the 1.4 litre FWD petrol engine I'm planning on using has 55 kw and this will not change, but the torque will be tripled via the BMW differentials I'm using to transfer power to front and rear axles.

"It will be too heavy!" - this project just like the firewood processor project does not have to float. And a heavier vehicle will handle better anyway when hauling heavy loads.

Stay tuned for future episodes! Thanks for watching!
