PC80 battery tray
 
a good fit. no, an exact fit!

So, will it get bigger at the same rate as the battery case, as things heat up?

what is the temperature rise of this battery above its environment?

I was really talking about environmental changes; same issue as canopy vs frame expansion rates cracking canopies. But you're right; charge/discharge rates can heat a battery, as well. I was kinda joking about the 'perfect fit' phrase, but if it's really a tight fit, could expansion pressure damage either the case or the tray?

it has about .030 inch clearance on the width and .020 inch on the length.

Somebody might want a tab sticking out of your tank cover that would function as cap removal tool. It would detract from the simplicity and symmetry but add a touch of functionality.

Tip up handle
 
Steve,
Just a suggestion, a handle for the tip up canopy would be a nice addition to your product line. Something to fit the C-01405C.
