Battery Mount

Warning: If you are not competent or do not feel comfortable doing any of these modifications or procedures, then please do not do so. I will not be held responsible for any damages caused by a result of your actions. Now on to the fun stuff!

After a few you know you really should have your battery mounted better, but we'll let you run this time comments at local autox's, I decided it was time to get the battery tied down better. Here's a rough schematic of what I came up with. It should work for all e36's with a trunk mounted battery from the factory.

I would have done a top mount (it's more solid), but the top posts prevented this. Someday I'll make a whole top for it with lips around the edges and cut outs for posts, but for now this works.
