I'm building a '62 Belair 9pas wagon. Since the tires I'll be using will be too wide for the spare tire well, I got a harebrained idea of locating the battery and fuse block in the spare tire well. I can use the existing vertical support to attach a custom battery tray and fuse block mount. I bought a 28 circuit Painless harness so I'd be starting from scratch anyway. It will clean-up the under dash area, firewall and engine compartment. It should also be easier to service the components. The concern is the acid fumes collecting in the compartment, even though I'll be using a sealed battery. Duracoat makes an industrial acid resistant coating that could be used to coat the inside of the right quarter and the access cover. The drain hole in the bottom could be used as a vent. Does anybody have any thoughts? I need to shoot holes in the idea BEFORE I do it.
