Default Battery Boxes

Which color billet battery box would you go with. I have an all white with white/red interior Fountain. Blue Mercury racing engine. The bilge has some billet red accessories already in it. I am leaning toward the polished but really like the blue.

Thanks,

Mike

If you go with polished, you'll have to keep polishing the box to keep the appearance up. They look great when new, but it's usually down hill from there.

I was going to go with polished but after talking with Fred I went with chrome. They look great.

I like the red myself. I have a couple from Eddie Marine. The clear powdercoat is starting to peel, right where the logo is, as the logo is bare aluminum. corrosion started on the logo and lifted the red. Who's boxes are you considering?

I like the blue the best .

How does the Chrome hold up???? I know the battery acid will not be good on it and even if any fumes for charging might get on it it will eat the chrome plating.

I will be using the Keith Eickert Billet Aluminum Optima Battery Box. I like this box because no ones name is on it.

Agreed! Good advise Fred!


How about a picture of the engine compartment now?
