Default Additional battery install

Getting closer to install 2 extra batteries for total of 315 AH. Case will be held to frame via 3/8" bolts via nutserts. Approximately 160# held by 8 bolts. Some welding to still be done for the angle iron to the case. I will probably add some small brackets to hold on the vertical side of the frame as well. this will go under a 2016 RT Simplicity in front of the rear axle. I kept the AGM as factory battery still good and kept same size of additions for same reason as well as cost. Thoughts?

Very nice work. You have your own CNC plasma cutter or mill?

If only I could claim to do such work. The "holder" is from Artec Industries which is sold through summit racing. I was tipped off to it via RT facebook user who had used it for one battery as they make several options. the only limiter is it is specific to DEKA batteries and their size. that worked for me since the original RT battery is a DEKA. I installed Duracell which are made by Penn and the same as the DEKA... $189 each at Sam's for the batteries.
