Anybody removed the stock battery tray in an s13? It's spot welded in but has anybody tried to drill out the spot welds to get it out of there?
thanks

The sheet metal under the battery tray is really thin and weak. It's best to leave it in and just cut a hole in it if you need to run IC piping.

Not the best pic but you get the idea. You can see where the battery tray was on the far side. It was pretty easy to take out with a handfull of power tools.

I have YET to see a 240sx with a non-rusted battery tray

Hey, mine's actually not rusted at all! In fact the battery was kinda loose so it polished up the metal.
