Going to start building a battery box on the front of our v lite, that will house a small battery operated compressor. Want a battery selector and shut off switch and volt meter built in it.

Got the rear one made and installed. Took the 2 wear blocks off and you could see that the blocks were what messed up the plastic wear strips. Got the LCI slide runners to use and will fab a couple of angle clips to hold them due to the fact that we removed the carpet and there is nothing for the points to grab.

Suggest anyone making their own wear strips to increase the length at least 1" on the curved end so when you get them installed, you can bend the excess over flat and secure it with a screw. I didn't and just Gorilla glued the entire curved surface. If it doesn't hold, I will make new ones with the extra 1" on the front.
