Default score! cheap as free battery box

ok, heres a freebie mod for me and a cheapie for eveyone else.
i was cleaning out my closet the other day and found a battery with battery box/heat sheild from my old saturn. took a glance at it and said hey... that just might work.
a quick rough sand, coat of paint and a jegs sticker later i have an attractive battery box instead of a scuzzy old battery.

the boxes came on first generation saturn *-series cars, but will fit any 78 series side post battery. nothing like cheap and pretty.

sorry... no pics at this time.
