Default Gil plastic battery hold down trays - where?

I have 2 of the Gil offshore battery trays that I want to replace. They are plastic and grey in color. Been searching all over and I can't find em. Are they called something else now?
I am looking for those in a group 27 size. Anybody have any?

Thanks!

I have two Gil battery trays in the Apache but they are aluminum. Overtons has some in plastic that look similar .

Rex Marine has the same ones. They are just not labeled as Gils.

Bottom of Page 34 and you can buy the tops and bottoms separate. I added a Rex Marine cast Battery box for a 3rd battery and it is identical to the Gil cast ones that I already had, except for the Gil insignia.

CP Performance has them. I believe they took over the Gil stuff. They also have the Gil exhaust and their oil pan is the Gil pan.
Here is the Gil cast aluminum tray.

Here is the composite tray.

Hope this helps.

Reviving older thread here...

I'm replacing my plastic Gil battery trays with stronger trays. Does anyone know if the mounting holes are in the same locations if I go with aluminum or cast?

Thanks!
