Re: 12 Volt battery to fit '40

Re: Foil balls for clearance

Learned this from a Bonneville racer. Try using a small marble size ball of Bondo. Let set and harden. Slice the pancake in half, the cross section is your exact clearance. I’ve done it a few times.

Re: Location of tinfoil to check CR

A old Bonneville racer that I knew used a small marble size ball of “Bondo”. Would let it harder and you would have a perfect casting.
