PLEASE. reduce the size of your photos and re-post.  Shocked

Sorry Jon, took me a while to get back to this. I had thought the pics would resize automatically when I uploaded them and once I saw they didn't resize, I didn't spot the "modify" button Embarrassed

If they're still too big let me know and I'll redo it again.

the whole pod was then sanded down a coat of paint added to finish it off ready to fit the light

I then marked where the adjusters were and drilled two holes for these. Then using fibre glass sheets at the back and filler at the front I filled all the holes and the old adjuster cut outs. This I felt would put back some of the strength in the pod.

The bottom of the plate is flat so this was used as a guide. After several cuts (I didn't want to do too much at once in case I removed too much) I offered it up and temporarily fitted it.

I started off by carefully drilling out the rivets for the lifting bracket and the adjusters! Then offering up the backing plate to see where to begin. I then marked off how much of the plate to cut off. I wanted to remove as little metal as possible!

Looking at the tub I had prepared it was evident something was amiss! I checked the other tub and found two plates riveted to the underside. I have removed, repaired the almost missing nut and treated and am preparing to rivet onto the new tub. I am assuming that these must be for some kind of bracket to secure the battery? is it a standard type with two rods and a clamp going over the top of the battery along one side, as the front of the battery has a lower lip to hold it in place.
