Projects In Michigan!

Too damn cold to go out, so I'm tearing my Prowler apart again! Picking my door frames up Saturday, so in between now and then I decided to change my primary battery. I cut an opening in the side panel on the drivers side, building a angle iron frame and plan on putting the battery there. Mine came with the smaller factory battery 360CCA, and I had a new 400CCA sitting on my shelf, so I decided to use it. It will slid in through the new access panel. Getting the old battery out was a pain, take off the wheel well, unfasten the dust shield, pull the cover, slide the battery out! Moved the voltage regulator, so that is also accessible through the new panel. Moving back to the Parking Brake handle, just need to weld the handle bracket to the spreader bar, and hook up the stock parking brake light. This will lock up all 4 wheels when applied. I'll post pictures later today! Just love to post S---! LOL

Thats one reason I like using the pedal for a parking brake,it locks all 4-wheels.

Finished the parking brake project, just need to paint the braket/spreader bar. Works pretty cool! I'm happy with it. Building the battery box next! I can padlock the parking brake for a anti-theft device, someone will have to work a little now to steal it! Also attached pictures of the access panel and battery location! Still having fun!

Turned out pretty good! Much better than the stock pedal, and my pedal started to slip at the end! Click two times and hold, but the brake was never completely set, tried adjusting many times and finally decided to change it! I found the assembly on ebay for 58.00 dollars free shipping! I'm a happy camper now, and it does lock up the brakes! Good thing about it is that it is a 1/2" off the pedal when released, so little chance of it dragging!

I found the assembly on a RZR accessory site, then went on Ebay. Prices went from 58.00 - 130.00 depending on the model!

Yes, that was explained to me on a RZR site, my sisters 900 RZR has one, and I really liked how it worked, positive brake that locked the wheels, you won't forget when this one is on! You ain't moving! LOL

Thanks Brian! Hope to finish everything up this week, and then take a breather! Picked up a set of transmission gears, and shafts, going to start putting the spare engine together! This Prowler is here for life! LOL
