CNC cut SVX Battery hold-downs
 
I've started production of these!


They are CNC cut aluminum. I will drill the holes for the hold down rods to match the stock distance.
These have not been cleaned up either...just wanted to get them out here for you to see.

The bottom one is same as the others, I just painted in the letters.

Any takers at $20 shipped to you (USA shipping)?

How about thicker Al stock?

I was thinking the same thing.

1/4" thickness at that length looks like it bows somewhat under tension. ..I would think 3/8" would work well.

And please round those edges...

For the material thickness - I have a Honda CRV sized battery in my SVX, much smaller than the normal SVX one, that's why it looks to be bending. I will order some 3/8 thick for testing, but I don't think it's necessary

Hope to have a fully finished one to show tomorrow.

Interested. Any way you can jazz them up a bit so it's not just a metal rectangle?

I'd be down for a cute battery tie down. :)
I love the look of the Prodrive and the COBB battery hold downs but I don't want the "COBB" logo since they make nothing for the SVX.

I dunno about "cute" :p but I've come up with a couple ideas (expanded from the original concept) that could pretty-up the tie without adding much too complexity.

If you can pull off something like the Cobb or Prodrive without it being too difficult that's fine, too.

Ok finally got around to these again...

Check out this revision.

I would cut the SVX logo through the large flat area. Or I could also cut 'ALCYONE' in the cool font and add the little horns

This is about the same size as the factory tiedown so I think it would not cause any fit issues.

I would happily guinea pig one for you. :) how much? With the alcyone and horns, preferably. Any chance of it being anodized blue?

Those are pretty cool. I'd be in for one.

I'm going to order some aluminum stock to make a pilot run.....stay tuned...

Looking pretty good! Any ideas on price? The ProDrive runs about $40-45 IIRC and the Cobb holds no attraction for reasons previously stated. At least ProDrive sells wheels that fit our cars! And oil-caps too!! Good work keeping after developing something worthwhile. Bravo!

Glenn :cool:
