Winter Blues

Not a lot of new stuff happening with the freezing temps and too much snow.
I have found some brake issues, I changed the rear caliper but the problems continue and a new master cylinder has been ordered and received. The work had slowed due to weather and injury from an auto accident keeping me sidelined for 4+ weeks.
The PFC50 charger and J1772 interface is not installed yet and the brake issue hasn't been resolved.
I have been looking at options to cover the rear batteries that would be lighter than the aluminum plate I contemplated using. I am favoring Lexan but not loving the price for the thickness I may need for the package area.

The charger may fit well into the spare tire space, I would like to offset the 33 pounds by removing something from the car, not sure what that would be yet...
