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! - Jeff Iwanna21/23windowsunroofDeluxe! for daily driving '80 Westi (2) BOTH FOR SALE '67 Sqbk '64 Ford Crewcab '87 Subaru 4WD '97 Nissan Quest Grass Valley, California, USA Jeffrey.Carver@Aerojet.com - - - - - - - - -snip - - - - - - - - There's not much room for the battery to move around so any kind of lining will work. Yep, a food container will work just fine. Personally, I think 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.
