I was wondering if that was what you did. Good idea!
Are you using a Scorpion tank from a newer sled?

    This sled is going to be better that it was from the factory.

    Superb work!

    i built a wire harness for the sled and hung some more parts on. because i am using a 290 ccw e start on this sled i needed to make up a harness and add a relay and rectifier. i also needed to fab up a heat shield for the battery.

    Nice work Rick.

    I'll throw out this little something, not so much that you should run out and do this, but it's a maybe......... I took the case off a junk battery charger (never throw anything away yes?) and used it as a shield of sorts on a display pump I made. In my case it's more to let heat out than keep it from getting in, but with the louvers facing the opposite way it would likely let cool air intake flow through it.  :-\
    If you can't look back on your younger self and realize you were an idiot, you're probably still an idiot.
