Hey Melissa,

If your talking about for the van set as your profile pic, then I know the battery is hanging underneath with a cover. Are you wanting a battery box to move the battery someplace else, or do you want to box it in where it is now?

so what type of van do you have,,,,SportVan,,,Custom or Deluxe,,,,,how bad is the damage,,,,,something that a flat piece of metal could fix,,,,,,,,people dont like tripping over that box and smelling battery acid so they knock a hole in the floor behind the drivers seat and use angle iron to hang the battery down in it,,,,,,,,those battery boxes get put behind the passenger seat to make room for the SportVan slide out step,,,,,,,does yours have the side slide out step?

1969 Chevy Van 90 G10 Base, it has 2 doors on side and 2 doors in the back. It has no box only straps holding it in, he wants a box for it. My mistake. But it is behind the passenger seat and no steps.

None on the driver's side, The two rear windows, the two side door windows, and passengers and drivers doors. We have the cover, Ebay has Plain Aluminum Battery Box is what it is.

I asked Vanny if he would post more pictures for me, I don't know how.
Thanks Melissa

If I had the van here, but have to find a hauler to haul it down. We put 4 tires on to roll it out of its holes, and now one when flat.

My battery box is supposed to be inside also but as Don said, having it inside can create problems if your over charging or battery is leaking.
It can fill the inside with fumes and I have heard of them even exploding if contained and a spark happens.
I built a frame and mounted it under the Van where the step would have been. My '65 had one mounted under the driver's side because of the step.


You can buy a frame for a battery at a wrecking yard or parts supply for a truck or other vehicle that can be mounted underneath also.

Thank you, we need all the help we can get. Smile Getting it here is about to drive us crazy. Borrowing my son's truck to tow it home is like pulling teeth. Once we can get it down here and take lots of pictures, all and any advice is most welcome, seeings your all experts, and were newbies. Smile We will accept all advice..

Thank you so much,
Melissa

It all boils down to if you have the skill, time, tools, equipment, and a place to work on it,,,,,,and if you got a lot of money, pay someone else to do it,,,,,,,,,,,,we provide choices for any situation,,,,,,

This was posted by 62stationbus the other day in this thread..

Everyone has their own opinion of whats pricey, and everyone has a different idea of what they want their van to look like when its finished.

So all options being presented..
