Slights mods to this excellent design

Slight mods to the original design shown:

Non-welded angle clip using counter sunk machine screws.
Back has Riveted on fender well Alum. spacer to level box
Speed nuts for holding on upper and lower straps make removal easier.
Inside corner Alum. spacers to allow battery to clear head of fender well screw.

5 hour layout, fabrication, and install time including trip to Home Depot for materials.

I went through an autocross tech last weekend and they said this is one on the best battery hold downs designs they saw. I did have a problem with the stock hold down battery movement and one case where it was rolling around in the trunk, but that's gone now. Thanks for posting the original design. This site is a good resource for saving time with non-recurring engineering.
