Not Your Average Odyssey Battery + Rennline Mount Install - Pics

I decided to do a little fun weekend project. I bought the Odyssey 680 battery and Rennline Mounts - about $200 for all. Then I proceeded to die grind the Rennline mounts down (they appear to have a coating on their brushed finish) and then I polished them to a mirror finish.

Polishing aluminum is long HARD and dirty work! WoW!

But the end results speak for themselves, you could shave in the polished finish. Nothing wrong with a little show and go!

I also painted the factory metal bracket at the same time.

The Interstate (truck looking) battery I pulled out of the car weighed a mighty 42lbs! The Odyssey 680 is 14.5lbs and another 1.5lbs for the Rennline Mounts.

This is how the Rennline mount (brushed finish) looks when you buy it:
You can see I have started removing the coating and die grinding and prepping the aluminum:




After polishing the dirt look on the metal, is actually an Oak tree in the background:


Notice Summit racing print reflection:


Mocked up:


Installed, sorry these pics are not very good, but it looks pretty good and you can actually get your 13mm open wrench in there now to access the terminals:
