Interior - rear109 viewsSeat covers were custom made with the lightning bolt to tie in with the EV theme of the car. Three-point seat belts were installed for improved safety.

Front battery support bracket158 viewsThere was just enough room in the front for four of the traction batteries. This bracket was bolted to the old gas tank mounting points and the lower part of the chassis.
