Fox body guys, have questions.

I'm ready to install my fuel cell and battery in the trunk.
I'm interested in how others have laid this out.
Going with a 5 gallon cel and single 16v battery.
Did you center the cell and run the battery behind the pass tire?
Looking for best weight distribution.
Pics would be appreciated.

When I had a fuel celled car I had the cell in the spare tire well and the battery as far back and right as it would go. Now im running a stock tank type car. Battery is far back and right as it can go now though.

Same here 5 gallon cell in the spare tire well.

I have two batteries, all of the way in the back two corners. The further back they are the more they should help with traction.
