cleaned up underneath - as much as i could be bothered. Put it back on its feet, paint the engine bay and then fit off the motor (again), the controller, inverter etc. 
Then ill buy the batteries (15k odd worth) - yeese! (its disappointing that the most realistic choice in batteries boils down to either one Chinese brand or another)

Will batteries go in the engine bay? Seems you’ll be missing weight with the electric setup

Your right - I’m looking into it!

I’ll put them in the engine bay for the engineers. I’ll chuck some in the boot if I need more

I suppose if they are stacked near the bulkhead, it'll be fine . There will also be a huge cavity where the tank used to be and that could be a good spot for more lipos , NIMH's .. or whatever they are lol
