Fitting the batteries
After using a grinder to remove excessive weld and some of the heat sink for the controller the batteries were installed in the bottom row.
Some of the batteries had to be ground at the top seam as they were slightly too wide at that point and wouldn't fit correctly.
I also installed a new fuse in the motor controller, from 125A to 200A as recommended. The new batteries have been know to open the stock fuse.
