Carb'd Battery Tray DIY w/ Deka Battery

i obviously got my idea from ducatisuite.com. i had to wait to make my tray because i wanted a dry battery. i picked up a dry sealed Deka EXT12 for $60. measures 3 3/8L x 5 7/8W x 5 1/4T weighs about 7lbs. 180CCA and the replacement equivalent to other YTX12 batteries. not a sale person just think it's crazy that companies selling $100+ wet batteries. well.......back to the build. i picked up all my materials from lowe's for about $20. i'll list what everything is.

for the size of this battery i used a 8x18 precut sheet of 22 gauge sheet metal. the 2 red pieces are 1/8 thick rubber that are 6inx6in. i'm going to cut them to put on the bottom of the battery and maybe on the sides. i got them in the plumbing dept. it's called "Plumb Pak" $1.50ea. i like the OEM way of the battery tie downs. so i stumbled across this adjustable bungee cord that i'm going cut to make 2 ties. i made a template and measured everything up. now it just has to be bent up.
