Does any one have a original battery box cover, and be willing to make a drawing of it ? or loan it for reproduction ? :D

Mike, the battery on 34-36 Auburns hang down under the passenger seat. This creates a hole the size of the battery in the floor board. There was some kind of cover ( I suspect metal) that was slightly raised, and held in place by turning a tab over the edge of it. This tab is the same thing that old houses used to retain the storms and screens in the window opening.
It is difficult to describe something I have never seen . :D

CURT: Did you ever get the information you needed about the battery box cover? If not, I may be able to help. My 1936 sedan (for which I've bought a number of parts from you) was mostly original when I purchased it. I don't know for certain if it's original, but the cover over the battery box -- which is pretty worn -- is a 10" by 15" piece of "fiberboard" about 3/32" thick. It has a short, flat, woven cotton (?) finger strap riveted to the top to aid in lifting it off. It's larger than the recessed lip of the battery opening in the floorboard, so it just lays there with nothing to hold it precisely in place, other than the fact that it looks as though it might have been pressed into a shape that helps keep it located.

Much of the mechanical and somewhat hidden parts and pieces of the Auburns didn't change much from the previous series '31 - '33 cars. On the chance that they were the same, the battery cover for my '31 coupe has a piece of wood about the same thickness as the rest of the cab floor, with a spring loaded ball retainer that pops into a rounded out spot on the surrounding wood. Looks like there might have been a lifter strap at one time or another fastened to the top.
