Does anybody make a steel battery box incert for TR-3s? I have two TR-3 buddies that need new floors in the bottom of their battery boxes. They do not want to remove and install a complete battery box. Our choices are to buy a complete box and cut it down or build an incert for the bottom with 2 inch sides and spot weld it in. Its too late for the plastic incert. Thanks, Bill C, Mesa, Az.

I haven't seen the part you're talking about for sale anywhere -- but, since it's just a rectangular box, 2" or so, tall, it wouldn't be anywhere near as hard to make as a complete battery box.

They can be made out of stainless steel at a sheet metal shop. I just made one for my TR3 and looks very nice. Guarnteed not to rust!
