RE: Battery Tray Preservation

A plastic tray made for batteries usually includes dents
and ridges to keep the plastic touching the metal to a 
minimum.   A plastic bag would trap moisture underneath
it, exacerbating the original problem.

I'm facing the same problem.  I 'fixed' it 15 years ago with
sanding and painting, but a larger hole has become evident.
I'll have to get to work one of these days, hope I can afford
an Optima by then, or at least get ONE and use it in both
Sqbk & Bus (of course I'm still in the wannabus category),
quick disconnects and tiedowns, and away I go!

There's not much room for the battery to move around so any kind of
will work.  Yep, a food container will work just fine.  Personally, I
the Optima battery is the way to go, but it is a tad spendy.  What about

just putting down a Hefty(R) thick ply garbage bag?

Has anyone tried putting their battery in on of those plastic battery 
holders?  Just occured to me that it may be difficult to secure with the

stock battery tie-down thingy.  But maybe some sort of plastic food 
container like tupperware might work.
