After finishing my traditional-looking ’31 Model A in 2007, I just got busy driving the wheels off it. I will be the first to say that this Model A is not period correct in every way, and every time I opened the trunk that modern Optima battery was sticking out like a sore thumb—the lack of trunk mat and side panels didn’t help matters much, either. Regardless of style of car, unfinished would be the correct description.

Don’t get me wrong, the Optima battery has been an excellent performer, sitting for months on end only to be ready to bring that 425ci Nailhead to life faithfully every time I crank the ignition. Performance wasn’t the issue.

It finally came time to do something about the complete (full trunk) back-door eyesore. So, I dragged the old sewing machine out of the attic and went to town—first order of business was to make a cover for the battery.
