Default Looking for TN1 battery frame - mine rusted away

Hi guys, I just found out my battery frame in the engine bay rusted away. Actually not worth 'restoring'. Does anyone have one without rust holes? :-)

Cheers Madmat

If I remember correctly, this part was available from mercedes. Might be worth calling a dealer and asking for a quote. Europarts SD in the USA has them for 150USD, so the deal part may be costly...

Yeah thanks! I thought it might be expensive!
I might just build a new one from aluminium...

Matt.
I have 3 in stock but they are all rusty but usable with a bit of treatment. Can you be bothered to come and have a look, 50 k's south east of Melbourne. Eric.

Hi Madmat
There is a chance if you find the part number and the description, that a Google search could find one for sale somewhere for a good price. There are places in Europe etc that buy up old stock from dealers etc and sell them for a good price. You might be lucky and might have to use Google translation to help
