Since i have the battery well primed and painted, I can start to install the electrical. I have been crimping connections in my idle time, but haven't really completely prepared for this.
Tonight, I mocked up the install. I put in the battery case and mounted most of the components with double sided sticky tape. Most importantly, I verified that I can get the battery in and out of the well through the hatch.

|The battery connections|
|Mains switch, bus bar and motor controller|
There is a red 300A switch that is the mains switch. A positive/negative bus bar comes off the switch. The bottom 2 leads are from the battery -- the negative goes straight to the battery, the positive goes through the switch.
The green wires are positive leads that connect to the white jacketed pair that go up to the switch panel.
|The motor controller|
|Primed the aft hatch|
I should have thought about that for the other sole hatches, but they don't see as much foot traffic.
