Track plastic question

To those who have track plastic on your 954, what did you do for the battery tray and associated electrical accessories mounted to the stock undertail? I can see an easy way to hack the stock battery tray/undertail that I think shoud clear the new tail...but would sure like to hear how others have handled this. Thank you in advance.

Re: Track plastic question

Have you tried your's on yet? I didn't think mine would fit either until did a test fitting.

You may be able to leave the stock undertail which includes the battery tray in place, unless you actually want to fabricate something else. My Sharkskinz tail section fits right over it. No trimming of the stock undertail was needed.

I swap my bodywork back and forth. I don't run turn signals on the street, so I just need to unplug the taillights. I bring the harness from it's stock mounting position on the outside of the subframe to the inside, where it might escape harm in case of a crash. I tape it down with blue painters tape to the inside of the trunk to keep it from bounching around.

Re: Track plastic question

New tail, Cheetah brand, won't fit over the exhisting undertail...in fact it looks like I'll have to move the relays and voltage rectifier? inboard to get the new plastic on with out flexing it beyond where I feel comfortable. Suggestions anyone? Thanks again in advance for your help.

Re: Track plastic question

Oh, ok. I do have to flex the tail a bit to get it over the rectifier, but the hole in the bottom of mine allows it to go over the stock fender. Your Cheeta piece must enclose the tail more. Good luck with it.

Re: Track plastic question

I left the rectifier, But I did move All other electical to the inside of the frame. Just spread the bottom apart and it will slide over.

I did have to cut the rear part of the undertail to get it to go. Of course It is track only. If you are looking to go back and forth you will probably have to modify the new tail instead. I'll get you a pic.
