    Where to buy one or how to rig something because mine completely let go last night and thankfully I found it before I drove. Its funny because I had all kinds of shingles and small boards in there supporting the battery and now they are all gone. I wonder what people driving behind me were thinking seeing shingles flying out from my inner fender? 1980 K5, passenger side battery.
    Thanks,
    Joe

    I just bought mine for my 89K5 and it was almost a C note with frieght and tax--So you might want to try the salvage yards.

    Please do not use junk to hold up the battery. Use a good tray with the proper bolt-down attachment. The battery is a big fire hazard and can ruin a lot of stuff under the hood if it gets loose. Even for street driving, it's very important to have it secured.

    I called the dealer and the tray was $17.00 but wont be here till Thursday. Thats what you get living in a one horse town where the only parts guy at the dealership had today off and they are closed till tuesday. I dont think I need the support if its what I think it is. The piece that comes off the radiator support and also has the coolant over flow attached to it. For now I did patch it up using some plywood I had but I am not driving it except for an emergency.
