Battery hold down strap fix

I took the battery out when I was mounting the Euro bumpers. Sure enough one of the hold down straps broke.
Cost of repair: $0.96 for a piece of structural strap from Home Depot.

I fixed mine as well with two pieces of former fire hose, still allowing a bit of flexibility.

Nonetheless, Mercedes unworthy design.
