Ok, if you had a few hours to properly fix new gen battery boxes that have corrosion on the bottoms and some on the side what wuld you do. This is all on the inside. The corrosion is not severe enough to scrap the boxes. I have power washed the boxes and all rust and loose paint is gone. Would you put anything in the bottom of the boxes after you have treated and protected the metal? Is it imperative that battery hold down clamps are used? Any suggestions appreciated, except the one stating to cease using them and install and a single battery box on the side rail.......

Spray the inside with Fluid Film.

On the hold down ? In rough conditions I'm sure they are a good idea. Our 4020 does not have them but it does not do heavy field work either. Not really any room for the battery to go anywhere when the box is closed. Very tight in area. LOL.

When I see any corrosion I take them apart and clean them out. I then just use regular green spray paint. I still have the original battery boxes on my 4010 so I guess that works for me. I do believe in the hold downs. I clean and repaint those as well.

Iíve used Miracle Paint with good results. Itís a moisture cured urethane. It comes from Hirsch Auto. Itís not cheap, but a little goes a long way. Wear gloves-it doesnít come off once it goes on.

Would rather use rust converter than POR15 in this case.

Maybe paint them with por 15 and topcoat them with color as the sun will make the por 15 fall off quick.
