Captive nut and battery tray

Recommended Posts

Here's my battery tray, which isn't bad, but the hold down thing has corroded and been discarded. I understand there's a captive nut behind but is it accessible to be able to remove and replace it such that I can drill out the corroded metal and slot a new captive nut in underneath?

 

I will be starting a restoration thread on the car eventually.

You can see the "cage" holding the nut if you put a mirror under, from the side, so I think its would be easy to get at if you put the car on ramps.

 

Your cars an interesting colour, what is it?

Not without its problems but with some investment it's getting there.
