my L has a nice piece of plywood that fits on the side brackets, several coats of varnish and a warning that it is Positive Ground. I'll post a photo if one of you guys tells me how to post.

That would be great when you go down to the reply box in the lower right corner is "more reply options" this will ask you to "browse" to your picture library, open your picture and attach and post.

Aside from the nice wood finish and the thumb hole looks really close to E.N.V.F.D. s cover, red with no thumb hole. I like Albert's better. Paul

It is a top frame made out of angle iron to hold the battery's in place. It was held in place by threaded rod. When I had my "L" fire truck I mounted a heavy duty "Kill" (on-off) switch on the inside metal of Passenger seat next to drivers seat to turn off battery's when not in use. It also prevented people from turning switch's to on on the dash and run your battery's down. Also kept the siren quite. If people get in your truck they won't see it, unless they know it's there.
