Battery cover

My battery cover is missing the bars that lock it in place. I would think I could make something work and make some replacement pieces. I know I can buy a new cover but I figured it wouldn't hurt to try, I'm sure I've got what I need to not spend anything but time.

Problem is that I can't seem to find any good pics. Can you guys show some pics with a good profile of what I need? Are they straight flat pieces or do they have a bend at the end for example.

Re: Battery cover

I think I have one that is complete. Have to do some digging though or weed wacking to get to the other truck.

Re: Battery cover

Here ya go. Don't mind the grunge. The previous owner was trying to seal it I'm guessing. I haven't decided if I'm going to sand blast it or just order a replacement.

Re: Battery cover

Thanks. That doesn't look to bad. I'll practice the bends on some clothes hanger wire then see if I have something thicker laying around.
