Battery box instalation

I got a second battery box and door from the factory. Now I have to cut the skin and the inside lining. Not sure how it goes together. This one goes on the front of my '85 Sovereign. Has anyone done this?

Very simple to do. Best thing is to lift the couch to expose the original battery box. it is a simple matter of duplicating the installation of that one. I have done it on my 1985 Sovereign a couple of years ago. Worst part is carefully cutting the hole in the skin. Measure and measure again before the cutting. Use stainless steel screws. The screws have a tendency to loosen over time and need to be tightened periodically.
