I'll try to shoot a picture of my battery area tommorrow. I'm not sure if there is a cover over the battery. Mine didn't have one. It is suppose to have a hold down of course which I added beacuse it got lost at some point. I'm not sure what the other indentation is for. It's pretty shallow for much of anything unless possibly a tool kit might have fit in there?
Glad to hear your driving yours. I'm taking mine to a show tommorrow (driving it there) only about 8 miles away but usually the entrance line takes up to 1 hour to park. 23 years and they still don't know how to park cars. There are about 1500 cars preregistered. Lets hope it stays cool. It's been good so far but this will be the test. It's a hot rod show so I will have one of the few stockers but that's the way I like them. I somehow lost my taste for most hotrods!!!
Grainit has a website with video on woodgraining.
Too bad you weren't closer. If you did all the prep work I would grainit for you. Actually doing the graining doesn't take all that long. You could do it all in a couple 1/2 days. it's the blasting, Priming, base coat, Clear coat and buff that take alot of time.
