Martin, you might be able to get the old style round caps for your battery to give it a better look.

I was thinking the same thing Bleach. The only thing is that the old style caps  screwed in and these new caps pop in. I will have to do some research on it and see what I can dig up. Or I can see if the screw type are larger on the threaded end and turn them down on the lathe and put an O ring groove in it. Then I can use an O ring to secure it inside the battery.

I thought I would give an update on the Merc project. I was having issues with the generator so I went a head and ordered a new one. Since just about everything else is new I decided I might as well. I have been buried with work so I haven't much time and the weather has been hot and sticky. Just don't feel like doing to much after working all day in it. Once I get the generator I will get back on it. By that time I should have a little break in my work load (I hope).
