The Optima battery box from John Ulrich is a gem. I thought about making my own but John's battery box really holds the battery nice and secure. $65 is a bargain for a nice part like this.

Here are some useful tools for prying off the panel clips without busting the panel in the process. Also shown is an original panel clip.

Larry; I would suggest you use some of the wonderful plastic tools in place of the metal for removing the panels. they are kinder on the paint. Keep up the good work.

Here is a picture of the Ulrich battery access cover reproduction. A pretty straight forward item.
