I picked up the eyes at west marine, they are small and pricey, SS and about $1.50 each, then some 3/8 in length SS screws.

I am in the middle of my exhaust install, if I think of it I will snap a photo tomorrow.

SABER, does owning twins mean you do not need storage, maybe not in MI, short seasons there.... LOL

Get some 1" flat aluminum stock from the hardware store and bend up you own.

Some good suggestions...I have the same problem, we use the large fenders so space is scarce. I like the eyelets and bungee cords.....another project for the list!

Bryan and others,

I took battery hold down canvas straps and mounted to port side of engine diamond plate. It has worked well so far, but to be honest is kind of a hassle. I would be real interested to see a picture of what you came up with Bryan.

Tim Fitzgerald

p.s. If you guys are looking to get some more speed (80 mph/ gps this fall) out of your 26ZX get in touch with me. The Livorsi Marine supercharger system I put on is awesome!
