Default New (used) 700E convert owner

Hi all, I realize these aren't done anymore.. so I'm hoping SOMEONE will see this and help me out..
I bought a used Nitro to "e" 700 convert from a member, it came with alot of stuff.. ( it was FBL, but I fly FB.. so I have a FBL head with it.. all the servos, esc, motor..batts..etc..)
He was getting out of the hobby, and isnt on much.. I could REALLY use some info, but more importantly.. some pics....
Right now, I'm just starting to put it back together.. it wasn't torn down to the screws or anything, in fact he did a GREAT job disassembling it for shipping...
But as of right now, I built a FB head.. have it installed and am trying to figure out how he had the electronics all routed and how he would hook the batts up when flying. The servos are in, the esc is in, the motor is in.. he didn't need to take these out to ship it....but I'm trying to figure out how the batts on this thing went in, and got hooked up, without the wires too close or touching the motor...
This 700 is converted with the KDE kit.
Any pics showing the battery lay out would be cool...and greatly appreciated.
I havent installed the tail yet, I'm waiting for the i2 block from Bob and the main bearing set up as well.
I'd like to get some ideas from you guys on how you did your set ups....again, I'd really appreciate any help.
Mike

Oh, I will add, that it came with the Scorpion 4035-560 motor and it appears a 13T pinion on the KDE 115T main gear. Thats seems way over the top for headspeed, but I'm sure he was probably running in governor mode in the ESC. I still need to check....
I've never run my 500's in governor mode, so I'm not quite sure how to set this up in my Tx....I'll figure that out when time comes..Thanks again.
