Quick question. But first...My girlfriend size doesn;t matter however...

Question:-

How big (thick) does the steel need to be for my new double battery tray under the hood? Its the Fat Sam type.

Interesting.

When i bought my van I replaced the battery with a bigger one when the old one died. Had Cd player and three lights on for 10 hours while working on it all day. Didn't seem to affect it much.


What Amp/Amp hour is the single battery you use?


I can't help with the thickness question sorry.

Cheers
