Any possibility of a reproduction battery tray?

There was a run of reproduction trays 10 or so years ago. I think they were produced by somebody in the Cosworth Vega Association. That supply ran out a long time ago. I know there is a demand for them, but the problem is the Vega is so low density that realistically only a small amount of them will be made, which will make the price expensive. I adapted a Camaro battery tray that I procured for less than $20.

Looks like you need more than a tray, but a $20 67-69 Camaro tray is what I used also.
I went to a sealed Optima battery so the new tray and replacement metal will not be getting an acid bath.
