best "drop in" option for ROW battery tray?

Hello,
it's been a long Summer of brining my 90 (aka lil' green firepit) back from the dead. It's re-wired, front to back. The motor has been gone over etc. and it's running nicely. I'm going after smaller, more managable, projects now. I'm trying to decide the best way to fix what is left of the battery compartment. The floor there is rotted through, and the battery just kind of slides around on what's left of the tray. I see plenty of "double battery" tray's for sale online and I've seen an NAS one on a forum vendor's site. Do any of you have a suggestion? Should I just weld something up myself? Will the NAS one drop in? It looks like the most complete option; the "double adapters" are just shallow trays. Thanks.

any problems with just using the standard j-bolts and retainer arm to hold it down?

No, no problem. It's just that I want to address the gaping holes in the floor of the storage area itself. It takes "vented" to a whole new level

I would just patch it. I am pretty sure you can use the battery box RN sells for $159 or someone in the forsale section had some take off ones that had been galvanized.

Thanks, that's the direction I was looking for!
