Product Description

1979-1986 Mustang Battery Tray Kit
Keep the battery in your 79-86 Fox Body Mustang safe and secure with a battery tray kit from 5.0 Resto. The battery tray in your Mustang mounts to the front fender apron, provides a safe place for the battery to sit, and protects the metal apron from the corrosion caused by the battery.

It is extremely common for the plastic battery trays found in Mustangs to be completely rotten after years of abuse. Once your battery tray has reached this level of deterioration your Mustang is generally unsafe to be driven on the open roads and will probably not pass tech inspection at the race track.

Get this Mustang battery tray kit and rest easy knowing that your battery isn't going to fall out at any moment!

3 Stars   Tray is good, Hardware is wrong
By on 7/12/2016
The tray is a very good reproduction of the 86 battery tray. There are no problems with the tray itself.

However the hardware kit doesn't make a whole lot of sense. The 86 only uses 1 screw on the bottom and 1 clip to secure on the bottom, and then the two screws to the inner fender. The 2 screws that is provided (the bronze ones) are the wrong thread for the inner fender, which led one of mine to break while installing it.

The only hardware that works is the bottom long black screw and clip, and the screw and clip for the hold down bracket. Reuse your stock hardware if you didn't break it already getting it out for the fender. It is the same thread/pitch as the black screws. I had to find a screw that was the same pitch and install because the brass screws provided with the kit is wrong. Don't use them or they will break and you will have a fun time extracting them!

I'm not sure why they send 2 black long screws for the bottom (it only uses 1 on my 86) and why the picture shows 4 silver screws, they didn't come with the kit and I'm not sure what they would be used for anyway. They also only send 3 clips with it. I'm guessing, 1 for the bottom, one for the hold down, and not sure what the other one is for.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

1 Stars   not for the beginner
By on 7/22/2016
Wasnt so happy, showed up missing hardware, no instructions. hardware I had didn't fit original holes. retapped.

guy on phone was rude at 50 resto.

no holes on bottom to bolt to frame rail, have to drill holes

if your missing the tray and hardware entirely from your vehicle you will need other parts to secure the battery to the tray

hard to find good quality agm battery that fits the tray also but wouldn't consider that a product issue
From LMR.com: We are very sorry that you had spoken with a rude personel at LMR and the part did not come with install instructions. Please give us a call directly so that we can get the issue taken care of for you. 866-507-3786

4 Stars   the tray fit perfect
By on 1/12/2015
The Battery tray fit perfect as it should the hardware kit left something to be desired. the hold down worked great but I had to use the original speed nut as the lip was to thick and it broke trying to stretch it over and the bolts for the securing of the tray to the inner fender skirt were the wrong thread I had to use the original hardware to secure. with all that said though it looks factory original and way better than what was in the car.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
