I understand, but I dont agree there will be a well made in the plate to fit the battery into.. this will attached to the rear panel andr the mid-section traverse.. but the metal used for the spare wheel cup, was a sorry excuse of metal (probably 0,75mm), whilst I am using 1,5mm steel.. hard as hell

.8 is standard car-sheet-metal.

The shape of 'things' should give it it's strength. The funny shapes in the bottom wheren't there just for fun

If you'r using thinker metal ofcourse, you won't need that kind of strenghtening, and while your putting in a (battery?) well, with attachments towards the rear panel and mid section traverse, I don't foresee any problems.

Way to go!

I know all the shapes and bends are there to give it its strength, but in a collision it would not have been worth much.. the worst thing now is that the bottow of the rear plate is not attached to anything in the center, so it a bit "wobly"
