[T3] battery box

I had the same issues with mine. I left a lip to weld to and after grinding down the welds I covered the area with two thin layers of fiberglass. then I went underneath and sealed it with one layer of fiberglass. Grind down and smooth both above and below. POR15 above and below. Inside under the battery looks clean but you can see it has been repaired. (Nobody looks in there anyhow) And underneath it's hard to tell. If I want it to look perfect I guess I could undercoat it and the repair would be invisible from underneath. I guess it all depends on how perfect you want things to look. Best of luck to you.
