I'll take better pics but you are correct almost dead-on.
Yes what makes this one even better is the angled nuts are correct. We know they are not seen when battery in place but that is a good one! That was 8 years ago and my searching did not come up with that one so hopefully its still around.

Per the descriptions provided, pretty sure the bat tray off my Z is original.  '69, Van Nuys, 04B build.   73K original miles.

Gonna take some work/clean-up to make it look good though....

I called and spoke to Ron; after checking he said the supplier for that battery tray was no longer producing them, and that the AMD was the only producer....  That's a shame as I was very impressed wtih the accurate detail that supplier had designed into their tray!   the AMD battery tray is like most of the AMD stuff... at the large scale, they do a pretty decent job, but then they fall down on the small details (like the orientation of the nuts)...

The good news is with some modifications as outlined and battery in place it can be made to look very correct.

Chick - did try and post a picture of mine here tonight - but didn't have any luck.. Suffice to say the picture that I couldn't attach shows the angled nut on the tray bottom as I mentioned previously and the tab on the end slightly angled.  I finally gave up -you'll have to take my word for it!
Couldn't believe how scruffy my tray actually was when I looked closer after removing the battery, which should have been done months back - but after 49+ years..

Thanks for confirming those details Steve; pity they're no longer able to source that part, but as Chick points out, the AMD version is very close with a minor tweak.

Wonderful thread!  But one question, do the 69 hold downs have the two dimples too?  I am sitting in front of my computer with a NOS battery tray with sticker 3893882 and can see the differences noted here.  But it looks like there is extra metal on the hold down tab.  So I think with a little trimming, it can approximate the tab.  My GM hold down does not have the dimples but has the rocketship stamp like a pic here.  Maybe a little time in a press will fix that :D

On the 69 models I've looked at that were original cars they have had the two dimples. Skip's late 69 09D Camaro has it and our March built 69 Nova that we ordered in Feb.69 have it for a quick two examples. Used on many GM cars over several years. The hold down that has the "rocketship stamp" (good one) I've only noted on very old service replacements. Survivor cars or used original two dimple hold downs seem to have a single stamp. "C" is a common stamp found.
On the tray Kevin, I actually did that to a GM service replacement tray I had and probably in a car it would look the part. What it would not have is the slight kink/bend in that tab area but possibly a press could accommodate that.

Looks great Lloyd, as always. Are you enjoying this project as a full restoration, rather than detailing and preserving a survivor?
