After about 4 HOURS
of trimmnig, filling, dremeling and fitting, I finally got the 3700 w/shrink wrap installed.
POOKYT: I'll snap some pics, but you may not like what you see!
It took mods to the rear bulkhead(most extensive), the center aluminum bulkhead(moderate) and to the battery tray(serious mods).
Here are some early highlights to what I did to both inspire and scare the hell out of anyone who has to do these mods.
-Dremel a LOT off the rear bulkhead, while trying not to damage the accentric holder
-Dremel a little off the upper and curved portion of the mid bulkhead.
-Remove the front vertical lip from the battery tray. I basically had to cut the thing off. (It simply wont fit where its supposed to with the larger cells)
-I also cut some slots in my battery foam to keep it from pushing down too hard on the cells...
You know...."slight modifications"...
I'll try to speak more specifically when I get a chance to post some pics.
A lot of work, but...MOST IMPORTANTLY....
this finally got the damn things in there properly....AND
my older 3300 still fit just fine.
If theres an easier way to pull this off, congrats to anyone who finds it...
