Exterior Battery Box

I went to pickup my 1973 rear bath 31' trailer and found the external battery box door hanging down. It turns out the PO had installed a large battery which prevented closing the door. The bottom hinge on that box door was also detached from the trailer. I drove the rig home with the door and the battery removed now I'm looking to re-install the box door and get a proper battery installed.

It looks like the door was attached by rivets along a piano hinge. Can someone confirm? It also looks like there was some additional pieces to hold the battery in place.

I'd love a picture of a proper installation and any additional advice someone might be able to provide.
