    Battery mounting help!

    Ok so I want to mount my battery under my false floor in my trunk where the spare tire is. I want to put it either in the far right or far left corner right up against the back. I want like a strap or metal bar to go around my battery to hold up against the back in place that I can use self tapping screws to screw holes so I can mount the bar in place so my battery won't move. I can't find anything like that online. Has anyone every done this before and if so any advice on where to get one?

    Another quick and easy solution would be to make your own flexible strap with this.



    It's called metal strapping. Cut a few strips to length and run a self tapping screw/bolt and a washer through one of the many holes in it to secure it to your trunk pan.

    We normally build a small battery tray and use double sided 3M tape to hold it in. We also under cut the battery try to ensure a very very snug fit.
