I was planning a vertical mount tbh like the pictures above. Super curious as to how @evo_ufo achieved his install.

I think the one in your photo is not a 680, the 680 would have its terminals either facing the side or the rear of the car but some bigger oddysees have a more "traditional" set of proportions which would suite the original mount a bit more as per those pics.

You are quite right - its a 935 but I think I can work with the same principle of the design

I’ll have to be satisfied knowing I don’t have any pop rivets so I will have to fabricate it AndyStyle

I'm pretty sure my PC680 floor mounted in the original clamp. It may have needed a fettle, I can't recall.
I put insulators over the terminals

I couldnt seem to identify a way to do this. The 680 sides are sheer, a regular battery has a small lip at the bottom. In effect there is nothing for the clamp to clamp onto on the 680

I 'm sorry I can't find any pictures. The battery lay flat on its side with the terminals pointing towards the centreline.
