Also the trim panel covering the tank,does anybody know what fixings go on the 2 holes on the bottom of the panel(I am getting fed up with the cable straps)
I originally had a flanged plate bolted to the fibreglass on the positive side.
Now the clamp (which I made up) for the negative side has a lug on top to hold a length of 6mm threaded bar with wing nut brazed to one end, which screws into a nut brazed to a small plate fixed to the fibreglass in the wheel well.
The clamp is secured to the bobbin in the floor by 5/16" UNC bolt with a Tommy bar brazed to the head.
The fibreglass battery cover is required for competition.

I fitted a small L shape bracket on the RHS (+) that hooks into the serration. On the RHS I made a small bracket that sits in a similar position and also curls around the battery to prevent fore/aft movement. I have yet to drive the car to know how successful it is, but it feels solid.
