    Rear Engine MK1 - Not sure what that does to the handling but it looks cool.

    3dr and pop out rear windows are certainly something different.

    Look good still not sure how it would handle, I presume they have put some extra weight in the front.

    It's a battery cover ? Can't be that specific surely ?

    As long as the battery dimensions are covered top wise just a case of modifying the side panels to suit the bits around it.

    Might grab one from toys r us and get a Stanley knife out

    Just to add.

    Search "Lego lid " in your well known auction site .
    Scroll down theres a couple of storage boxes the look ideal for a DIY job .

    Better still. George at Asda has yellow/green/blue/red for £15

    25x25x18 (4 pot)

    50x25x18 (8pot) if you need a bigger un

    Maybe cut the 8 to a 6 to cover a (decent) size battery not the AAA 45a box the fiesta uses
