relocating battery

How hard or how much would it cost to relocate the battery to the boot in an EL falcon.

Is it even possible??

kits are made for such purposes.. maybe not for the EL itself but a length of cable, and a battery box plus whatever brackets .. try a performance shop

The cables need to be twice the size as standard due to voltage drop & longer cables,say 35*mm atleast..

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
