Default Sourcing a leisure battery and box

I want to fit an additional leisure battery in its own box but I`m having trouble finding a battery supplier who can provide both, thereby ensuring that the battery will fit the box. Can any of you funsters help?

I think you may have to buy seperately.

even if you dont buy off ebay its worth a look and search batteries first....most give the dimensions

then search battery box's....some give the internal dimensions as well

knowing the dimensions of both will ensure a good fit.

I made my own battery box last time using aluminium plate, aluminium angle and a pop rivet gun.
