I really like that design. Only thing I would change is to add either one (or maybe two) 1/8" x 1 flat straps welded in the middle with the welds ground flush of course. Doing this would support the middle of the plastic battery case which is currently only supported around the perimeter. Adding this would prevent the plastic battery case from sagging in the middle over time.

Regardless, That box looks very nice and looks so much better than the hack jobs that many people hang of the side of the frame rail. I simply can not stand those of the side of the frame rail hack jobs you see so many people cobble together on ole h's and m's. Also, I totally hate the bungy cord interweaving job people sometimes do as that looks like crapola as well.

Your solution is both elegant and very functional and should be quite durable being made out of 1/8" stock instead of sheetmetal. I expect your design could be copied quite a bit. It is a model template that could be easily made with the most basic of welding tools. Even some of those junky dirt cheap $59 welders could handle this project easily. I admire designs that are practical and this is one of them.
