removing wheel wells!

have a 90 caprice and wanna lower it alot more but wheel wells is an issue so i came to a conclusion to remove them! The driver side is clear besides the charcoal canister deleted the washer bottle and cruise control object...my concern is the passenger side cuz i have the battery coolant jug and a few electrical items...i need some advice on what to do and keep the battery in its original place?

i removed them today wasnt all that bad more space and looks 100 times better! I might get some sheet metal and weld some custom tubs so the water doesnt splash everywhere i was suprised i didnt have to relocate the battery but i do have to mount the coolant jug elsewhere

yeah i did the passanger side today and mounted the charcoal canister right behind the headlamp luckily it was 2 holes i could bolt the tabs to! Now i have to remove the wheels and under coat the frame and control arms! Now im in the process of tucking as much wires and hoses as possible for a much cleaner look!
