First Robot Project Help Needed

I need some help building a robot. I am currently building my first robot and am trying to figure out the best way of placing everything on this guy.

The picture below is how I want it to look in the end. Is there any techniques for mounting a raspberry pi to this chasis?

This is the chasis I am using ... 0Gladiator

Also, how would I go about using the included battery pack? I was thinking about putting it on the underside, but would it supply enough power to run my pi and the motors or would I need a separate power sources. This is my first robot project. I have ordered some more cables off of amazon that I will be using and I am just trying to picture how I am going to put everything together. I would greatly appreciate any amount of help.

My plan was to have the pi run off of this pack and then the motors and ultrasonic sensor run off of the included battery power supply that came with the gladiator. ... ics&sr=1-5

I'm using this HAT to be able to control the motors and my ultrasonic sensor. ... UTF8&psc=1

Based on this, would all of this be enough power to handle the raspberry pi (model 2 b), 2 motors, and an ultrasonic sensor?
