Now those caps are just sexy!!!!
Like the lone cow on the horizon, you are outstanding in your field again!
PS: Where'd you find the MM graphics for the side of the battery!? I missed that at first as I think others did!!!!
When you were describing making the mods to the caps, what are the "booties" you are talking about????

I originally looked at the Ferrari ones but they turned-out to be a little on the expensive side. So I opted for the eBay variety little less expensive, good quality and still look good.
Is there any number or text that reveals it's FIAT rubber booties?
I have new battery hold-down from De Tomaso that looks like your if anyone is interested...
I have trouble transferring photos to my computer, I post photos as soon as I solved the problem.
I do not remember exact right the battery hold-down I have is the one that is labeled A.
What you seek is labeled C.
I have never seen labeled A on a battery mounted in front, only the one labeled B. Does anyone know if labeled A was used on battery mounted in front, if so which Pantera? or whether it is supposed to be "adjusts" the holder to fit the rear mounted battery?
Is yellow the correct color?
If you somehow come across a junk Magneto-Marelli battery, it's possible to melt the top sealing goo off, gut the interior & wash the case clean, then fit a smaller modern battery inside and tack-glue the original top back on. Internal jumpers connect the 2 sets of posts. Guys with ancient vintage cars do this for formal Concours- sometimes going from 6v to12v in the process while losing no judge's points. Don't throw ANYTHING away when working on your DeTomaso!
