Nice one, I initially thought it was a picture frame for a rare leaf found on your garage floor laugh2

Because Morgan fitted a weird, rather wide battery (see my recent photo) and made a cradle with support on only three sides. When the OE battery fails and you replace it with a battery of normal dimensions with only two terminals...

OK. Got it. I know Dave W fitted a plywood floor to do the same & fit smaller more modern batteries

As the cradle is steel, I chose steel.
