And thanks too you.

I spoke with Norm this afternoon and he produces them with an automotive grey primer finish -only- now.
Also, there are no isolator bumpers , nor provision for those either. He told me that a couple strips of conveyor belting is what is recommended.
The cut out for the battery cable in the left side and lid are round, just like original.
He had his own dies made, so the tray and lid are as close to OE as is possible.
I will be sending a check as soon as the shipping fee is determined. There doesn't seem to be any other worth-my-money alternative.

I have been very happy with his box. I was a little disappointed about the bumpers until i realized they really get in the way with the modern battery size.

Since there are two different bumper -height- available, -and- you CAN get bumper retainer brackets(Burch), I might try and put some in the new lid once the box kit arrives. I'll have to paint it anyway, so the effort -might- be worthwhile.

TM Tractor has two different height bumpers. Steiner also sells the retainers.

Paul, I have two of those battery boxes, and love them. BUT, be advised, mine came primed with what appeared to be Rust-Oleum Rusty Metal primer, and it looked good, so I painted it with some IH red paint. The paint on both boxes, after about 1 year, began to lift in several areas. I believe they weren't cleaned of all oils, etc, before they were primed...especially around the edges of the front & back hold-diwn tabs. I sandblasted them, and reprimed & painted them. Fine now.

Just something to think about.

I didn't use rubber bumpers in the boxes I built. I took an old mouse pad, made of 1/4" foam rubber, trimmed it down and used spray adhesive to stick-tack it to the underside of the lid. That way, no electrical shorting and a mild buffer between the lid and battery posts.
