Anyone have a new or used
ready to install tray that they could
take a picture or two of ?
Basic measurements?
I know that i could modify
something to work if i had a
baseline to start with.

Thanks!
I will be replacing it with a steel tray
I just have to have a baseline of size and
shape for the tray and bracket.
If i had pictures and measurements
of the correct non steel unit
i would then have starting point to start.

I have an NOS replacement for one my cars in storage. If you want, I can send it to you so you can measure/copy it.

Mike
Your the best! thank you for the offer
but i think i can find something local to
look at
And when i have it worked out
I will post pictures here.
I never keep a battery in any of the cars
that are stored so the battery's are in and
out all the time and the last time I put the
battery in
A small section of the tray fell
on the floor
Again Thank You for the offer!
and all you do for us here.
