On the topic of batteries: I'm thinking of battery mount locations for a traditional flooded, group ___ battery. I know I can buy a small PC680/PC925 AGM battery, but my fear is that I have battery issues somewhere I can't find a replacement and I'm stuck because of it. (I've been on many, many road trips and having a car with common components is a God-send when you're in BFE. My list includes transmission, u-joint, battery, alternator, radiator, tire, wheel, brake failures - sometimes in very remote areas like Glacier national park/Canada, etc.) Now, regardless of which battery I choose - I do not want to bury my battery within/under the vehicle for several reasons: 1. Clearance 2. protection from road debris 3. Access 4. solving the venting issue with flooded battery. For a small AGM battery, I would plan on mounting it on the firewall next to the motor. For the larger battery, I am considering a fender/running board mounted battery box similar to mid-20's Ford/Dodge sedans. One thing I'm finding fairly affordable are tractor battery boxes. https://www.completetractor.com/new...ll&gclid=CLrlkqeS3eQCFdVggQodTb0PGw&gclsrc=ds I think it would look pretty cool in a solid, bold color like the red that is pictured. Anyone care to weigh in? I'm open to opinions related to this type of car. (no trunk or truck bed to speak of, which is where I'd throw it if I had the choice). Planning on staying full fendered, but I guess the smaller AGM would allow me to remove them if I wanted to, down the line.
