I bought a V8 Archie Front Mount Battery Tray. I have been trying to come up with ideas on how to secure the battery (other than using the spare tire that I don't have). It has to be secure to pass inspection anyways and I don't like the battery to be loose anyways. The battery is a stock Fiero size battery, its an Interstate MT-75 battery. I have came up with these two possible solutions.

Thoughts? Better Solutions?

I don't know if it's a "better" solution, but what about just securing the battery the same way as it's done in the OEM battery tray? That's the way I've done it with my front tub battery installation.

When I brought my Formula to BC from out of province, it had to pass the provincial safety inspection. I had already done the battery re-location when I took the car in for its inspection, and the battery mount I had fashioned up front passed no problem.

I have archies batt box and just placed a strip of aluminum on the bottom outside of the box drilled a hole in it,and then slotted the batt box (for adjustment from diff batts) and then just used an OEM style batt clamp.....looks neat and clean and can swap the batt fast and use diff size batts if required
