Since I do not have coilovers and cannot use the Breeze box, I fabricated a box last night rather like Forrest's beautiful setup. It will mount next to the stock battery location, but closer to the driver's side. I was hoping to put it on the passenger's side, but the shorter fuel tank support on that side prevents it. If this works, I'll post photos. I really like the Breeze box, but again, it requires rear coilovers, unless Mark has changed the specs.

Uraeus,

Check out the home page for FFcobra.com. THe new design has the battery up front.. Real nice and neatly as it were supposed to be there. Of course this post is after I located mine in the trunk and took up needed space in there for the full size spare, floor jack, tol bok, cooler, chairs, dog, and everything else that seems to be needed on a day trip to a show or go..... :eek:

I see what you mean. The Battery box I remember at Breeze is the one that mounts behind the passenger seat. I see the ew one mounts on the passenger footbox.

My box will mount below the upper trunk deck right next to the stock location, but should not take space from the trunk. In the trunk the only indication will be the cover with Dzus fasteners to allow access. I found that an Optima battery fits if the hold down goes lengthwise and not across.

I got my Breeze battery box in the mail yesterday afternoon, took 1 1/2 hours to install it last night (could've been quicker but had to be quiet as a baby was going to sleep), and looks perfect. Will try to post some pics tonight on the Phoenix site. Seems to me like a great component.

I installed my battery just like Uraeus wants to do, and it works just fine. Just make sure the battery you select is short enough to slip out under the trunk hoop. I think my battery is 7.5" tall with recessed posts. Goes in and out just great.
Happy motoring
