This is part of the restoration, …that I paid lots of money for a few years back, …that PISSED me off the most. The battery box that was installed, …was done so piss-poorly, …it makes me laugh.
First off, the battery box was made out of metal, ……bare metal, ….and installed without any paint or drainage holes – so it rusted.
Next, the battery was held in place with expanding spray foam. Yeah, the same stuff you put in door jams
to seal/insulate. How in the hell are you suppose to replace a dead battery when it’s glued in place with expanding foam? It was a giant pain in the arse to remove the foam.
So, it needed to be fixed. I sandblasted everything, welded all the seams, and spray painted with rocker guard.
