Question Battery Relocation Question

I've done the search and read all the posts. I have a new question though...

Is there a way to relocate the battery to the trunk, but not bolt it to the frame? I dont feel like drilling into metal. Maybe a nice tough strap around a body peice?
I have amps mounted to the back of the rear seat, and a sub box under the rear deck, and cd changer in the spot infront of the jack (drvr side). So I'm gussing the best spot is the rear most passenger side of the trunk, right in that corner.

Or is there another location for the battery? I rem in the 1976 vette, it's behind the driver seat, in a compartment.

Why don't you use a battery relocating box for it in the truck or use the type of battery Shiv just changed to in his SCC article. That one can supposedly be mounted at any angle. It's the Hawker Genesis.

Just glue it in ...If you don't secure it with bolts you will not get by tech for SCCA autox or any track days. What is the problem with drilling?

i'm not looking to compete, so their rules dont concern me.

i dont like putting holes where they dont belong. - afraid of rust and screwing it up.
