    finally, here is pic of my setup, yes I know its Filthy :-) first nice day in weeks. getting cleaned now.
    This looks pretty nice. I want something like this, but without the factory plastic battery tray, if the tray is still there then it looks like something is missing.

    Bringing this thread back.

    I have almost bought the Braille a few times and currently have the whole set-up sitting in my cart just waiting for that click. I wanted to make sure there wasn't something else lighter with a better or comparable price point. I have looked into a few of the Deka batteries but I'm worried about the CCAs being so low, especially compared to the Braille that is supposedly the same.

    I am sure other people have experimented with more by now and would love to see them before I decide on the Braille.

    I have the battery cover designed, I have the tray roughed out, its just a matter of getting these x braces out the door and this will be a 1 day project to finish

    The battery you choose is actually not relevant I can make the mounts specific to the batteries dimensions, and the cover doesn't change

    Looking good. Having something like this will make mounting the different ECU units (or hiding them from view) easier.

    The battery cover and tray are good options, but let's get back to Dylansi's original question in reviving this thread.

    Attachment 12105Attachment 12106Attachment 12107 my new battery compartment using the new found space to help out the 500 Madness V2. The Braille has worked great. I did add a pigtail for a battery tender but haven't used it yet. The new battery holder was fab bed from aluminum. Works great with the new small hood scoop collecting air to go straight to the larger K&N compartment. I had these pics somewhere else on the forums so sorry if a repeat

    I'm very happy with my Braille and glad I got it. Just remember with these smaller batteries if you are not planning on using the car for over a week (particularly in the winter) hookup a good battery keeper. I have one that came with a plug and a socket that is hardwired to the battery - takes 30 seconds to pop the hood and plug it in.

    Wanted to post an update, I just got the Braille battery and mounting kit, though I think 8" j hooks that I could cut back some would have been better. I also got the battery heat shielding when I ordered from Jegs. Also, I didn't like the peg/clamp attachment style because no matter what I did, I couldn't get it secure to my ease of mind so I ditched the pegs and clamp ends and attached the wire assemblies directly to the battery terminals, much cleaner and more secure. I'll probably clean the area up a bit at some point but I just wanted to get it working so I didn't have to pull out the portable jump starter every time I wanted to start the car.20191205_190428.jpg
