07 Battery Box

Weight distribution would benefit with the battery in the trunk, but the owner wanted to use the stock location.  Not a bad idea, as the car won’t be raced, or anything of the sort.  The primary drawback to the stock location is the heat from the turbocharger.  It seems to shorten the service life of the battery.

I had an original to use as a pattern.  Blue metal came from a 900, silver is from the roof of a scrapped Volvo 240.

In Situ.  Looks a little busy in there…
