Mid 1970s battery box photos needed

I'm trying to rebuild my fold down battery box (the kind that looks like a step) and could use some pictures from members that have this style of box. I'm looking for photos with it open and closed. Anything you have would be a great help! Thanks!

Sending Pictures

Hi Mile 2885, This is my first post so replying and sending pictures will definitely challenge my limited tech knowhow. Actually, I'm remodeling my 75' Sovereign 31 footer down to fully gutted interior skin/insulation and do not plan to use the battery compartment as I now will have two trojan batteries isolated inside their own compartment accessible from the inside under the sink area (going solar). Therefore, I could send you the battery compartment inserts if that would work better. I could remove the inside compartment pretty easily, but would probably need to just cut out main part of door step insert because from what I can tell, I would have to completey dismantled the door to get it out. I had a pic of the top cover I took looking down from the inside, but couldn't find it in my pic list-if needed, please let me know and I will redo...Mr. Bill

BillyB please see my PM, as I may need the box if mile2885 doesn't.
Thanks and it appears you have the picture posting thing down and under control.

Mile2885: Ready to send battery box parts

Mile2885, I have removed the battery box components including the complete part from the drop dow door by dismantiing it. I've Included a picture of the parts. I need to know if you still need them before I ask the other interested party therefore, please respond to this in the next week or so. I may not respond immediately as I will be back out at my Airstream (70 miles West of here-computer is my only access) for a few days, but i will respond asap to get this resolved.

If you still need them, please send a check for $38 to: Bill Bradfod, PO Box2172, Grapevine, Tx 76099 ($30 for the parts/handling and $8 for shipping-if it's more, no big deal ok? Upon confirmation I'll go ahead and send them asap.
Thanks, Bill

ps: The preview showed a box to click to show the image which came up when I clicked it, but it doesn't show on the actual post. So, if it's not included, let me know and I'll give it another try, thanks, bb.
