The BRB Big Red Button


Well it's time for the compulsory Big Red Button and as the Matiz has one small cup holder in the centre console seems like a good place to go. This is of course for isolating the main battery pack from the drive train components here I started with drilling a 32mm hole in the bottom of the cup holder


Looks like this


Well I put the whole thing together and placed back in the car to find the contractor mechanism fouled on the gear selector cables so I needed to gain about 10mm so I cut away a further section of the holder. Next I found the diameter of the cup holder to be 75mm just the same size as an end block for a 75mm storm water pipe


So centre and bore a 26mm hole in the end cap and mount the BRB


Looks like this on the side


Back in the console view from under side


Used fibre glass resin to glue end cap in place 


Stuck tight 


And back together 




















No no nope not going to talk about this!!!
