So with the one piece fiberglass tilt front clip, I had to make a custom battery mount. So I fabbed up this thing to hold up the 65lb Optima D31 battery. It's cantilevered off the frame rail out over the fiberglass wheel well. I orginally designed it so the base held the entire weight. But after installing it and placing the battery on it, I had no quams about it stoutness, however, I noticed the fine chevy frame would flex slightly while I lightly pounded the top of the battery. I think it will stiffen up once an engine is installed, but I didn't want to take any chances, so I added the hanger off my rad support strut. (The black bar running across the top of the pic, runs from bottom of windshiled frame post to corner of radiator. Not as pretty as I'd like it, but I think it will do the job.
