Iíll upload them this evening- it was quite a hackjob with screwed in plates and puddy before I even got involved. Go figure, screwing sheet metal in with self-tappers doesnt prevent water intrusion.

You can easily maintain the contours with fiberglas overlaid, and I imagine you could sand it out reasonably enough to mask how it was done, but I just built it up as thick as possible because it was a total mess anyway.

I had a hole about 1 by 4 inches. I painted on two coats of POR-15, then laid a small piece of matt and then painted on two more coats, then laid a 2nd piece of matt and a few more coats of POR-15. Just do it in a well ventilated area because it contains cyanide. Be careful with drips as it is very hard to clean up spills. If you get it on your hands it takes about a week to wear off.

Thanks for all of your responses....I ended up scrapping the welding idea and decided to go with fiberglassing the box back to useable condition....I was wondering if anyone could take a center to center pic with the measurement of the battery hold down bracket and bolt... need to know this dimensions as I will have to fiberglass the bolted side of the hold-down back in place....kinda wanted to put it back in the same spot.

Here's a couple quick pics of mine. Mine had a hole in the bottom and the front edge several inches around the drain was all rotted out as well. I cut out all the rot and then fiberglassed the whole area with several layers, then drilled a new drain hole in the fiberglass and painted it all. It's a bit grungy in these pics (lots of recent rain) but has held up well and no leaks.

Thanks....was that your first time fiber glassing?.....it looks really good.

I fiberglassed mines last night, left the garage door cracked because of the fumes woke up this morning it was full of moths and other little flying insects...Lol!
