The battery tray on my '64 was completely trashed when i purchased my car, it even affected the sway bar, forcing me to drill and tap all new bolt holes, due to me breaking the bolts. I ended up cutting the inner fender pannel out with a skillsaw, then welding in a new peice of curved metal. Then I fabricated a battery tray from some sheet metal, which turned out pretty decent, when painted black. I decided to move the Optima batteryI purchased for the car to the right rear, I purchased a rear mount kit from Summit Racing and I'll throw some of those at you as soon as I install it.
