2.6kWh battery came in yesterday, I only had a little time to play around with it, but I was able to get into the BMS with its built-in wifi, and test charging the pack with a 120v to 54.6v charger. (I didn't bring it up to full capacity, I'll let it stay in the 60-70% range until I have everything hooked up and I'm ready to use it.)
Battery on the front passenger floorboard:

came in at the beginning of this week, so the next step is me ordering all of the appropriate connectors/cables for the panels to the charge controller, then from there to the battery pack. Once I've got all that done, I will get things connected to my Xantrex inverter, and go about configuring it. I want to have the batteries charged up to at max 90%, discharge to 20%, and after that use grid power to maintain power for whatever circuits I have running on the inverter.
I will continue to post updates as I make progress.
Pulled the trigger on going EV on 10/2016 with a 2012 Leaf SL, traded it in and now I'm a very happy Tesla Model 3 owner.
