The battery tray in my 95 fleetwood rusted away to nothing. Cadillac does not carry the part but gave me a part number (10109535), still no luck. Any suggestions?

Is it really rusted all the way through? The one on my Caprice I thought looked like shit too until I took a dremel to it and it cleaned up pretty well.

My advice is to check your local scrap yards honestly, or send a PM to TheFleetwoodGuy on here. He may have a couple.

TheFleetwoodGuy is the man. Buy from him whenever you can.

ACDelco had some leaky batteries at the time. The same story with my tray and the wheel housing. I removed whatever was a tray before, brush-wired the wheel housing and radiator support, covered everything with black paint, patched up the hole in teh wheel housing with a piece of zinc coated air duct and found a way to secure the battery. Everything looks nice and solid after 10 months.
You can buy a plastic battery tray from Advance if the wheel housing is fine (I doubt that though).

You can also probably get by with some fiberglassing if you can't find a suitable replacement.

Will a Caprice or Roadmaster tray work?

Yes, the part numbers are the same.
