I convinced oleredalert to let me demo a failed R59 repop battery of his.

If there are any more tips and tricks please let me know!!

Had someone ask me about the "removable" top. I left the top removable so it would remain serviceable. As long as PC925, or similar, batteries are made, this case could be reused.

Wondering if a judge sees the top is removable,then loss of points?
As opposed to top not coming off?

How much was the “inside” battery?

Where do they sell them (best price?)

Cut out the bottom leaving the outer edge untouched. I used one of those vibrating blades, a die grinder heats it up too much. Replace it with a Braille, expensive but worth it

What is a Braille?

PS: is your Vette White? I think we have met at PSMCDR...

I have an expired wet charged repro R59 too, sitting in a cabinet. I drained the acid but have not cut it open.

I did a conversion on a dated R-89 case for my 70 Z28 about 15 years ago and 370 CCA Miata battery fits just fine inside.

Cut the bottom out of the case, gutted it, and attached jumpers to the side terminals.
