New Battery brace

Maybe some of you were lucky to purchase these aluminum battery braces back in the early 00s. I still have mine from back then. I modeled up a copy for a 3D print using ABS and I’m very pleased with the result. I believe this prototype could use some tweaks, but I’m gonna run in for about a week in the car and see how it works out. Stay tuned here for updates.


Where does this mount? Is it the same as a battery tie down?

Yup. I’m going to install it tomorrow.

I would be willing to buy one. Mine is peeling and is rusted up.

I decided to paint it with some filling primer first because it was rough on one side due to the printing process, and sanding didn’t do enough.

The reinforced area by the tie down may be too thick because I barely had enough metal to attach the screw after I used some nylon washers. All part of the process of figuring it out.

I need to measure the dimensions of the battery too. I think this is a group 25 but the OEM ones were bigger.
