    Agree, might have had two sealed batteries side by side if the carpet compression marks are fresh? But looking at the base area there is a slot for a battery champ, so maybe a single?

    Yeah a Battery holder for sure. Alternatively I would mount a 10lt or 20lt Jerry can there for a water tank run to a small 12v pump and a Tap.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    The 12 tec screws would do that without any dramas ro be honest. The fact that it is screwed to a removable lid though..... bhahahahahaha

    Sounds like a waste of space then. Reckon I'll remove it. Can make better use of the space with something else and must be a better way to secure a sealed battery surely!? At some point I'll get some solar panels that'll be used to charge a sealed battery so I'll have to think about where I can put one.
