            Thanks for posting these kits. This is a great look for little money. They sell glue on and the push on caps. Depends on your battery.

            the embossed side and top plates are only in black with colored caps from what I saw in the list of auctions. I sent them a question on this.

            I was done with the resto batteries, they didn’t last long and cost way to much. $409 bux now. What a joke. I can get regular batteries to last 8-10 years.

            Mike, that is a great dress-up kit for the battery and reasonable $. Makes it stand out.

              Interesting. I have always had the yellow caps on my battery topper and resto batteries but according to the chart and from what I saw on Hamtramck Registry, GREEN caps were standard for 1971 340. The higher amp alternator was optional and standard on AC cars. Mine has no radio so I assume it was the 37 AMP alternator. I guess I am getting green caps !

                No issues. Shouldn't have issues unless your charging system is overcharging.
