The caps I can make but will cost you $50 a pair delivered.  They not cheap because they use a lot of resin compared to my other products and I also don't have time to be pumping out battery caps for everyone who wants a bargain..

 

The big flat cover you will have to organise yourself. I can give you the name of guy who made mine in QLD which was $45 delivered. I made my first cover out of some plastic I had lying around. It was good for a few years but couldn't handle the heat.

This is the measurements I sent the guy, you will need to check your battery top size.

You then need to get stickers made or purchase and then buy a red paint and a grey paint.

 

So in the end it gets expensive and takes a bit of time, but I reckon its worth it!

They make a very good battery sticker for HX / LX that I haven't seen anyone else do yet.

They have the pre '75 and post '75 stickers the wrong way around on the website.

No sorry. I got mixed up because they show the later one first. Yours is correct Brad.
