I just bought a red-top Optima battery (part#: 34/78-980) and now I'm trying to figure out if I have enough hood clearance. The hood shuts fine, but I'm worried the terminals might be touching the under hood mat. Has anyone installed one of these batteries in the factory tray on their foxbody, or have any good tricks to check hood clearance? My first thought was mark the terminals with chalk and close the hood, then open up to see if there is any chalk on the mat. FYI: the Optima battery is 0.813 inches taller than the recommended battery for my car.
