    I saw your offer of help and answers in a thread on Optima batteries.

    I am searching for information on the proper yellow top battery, hold down clamp and possibly the top cover for my 2004 Z06.

    Any info will be greatly appreciated.

    I have been using Optima batteries since the late '80's.I had a '77 short box Chev.with a 454 I installed and had a warn winch.I bought the red top for starting and a year later bought another red top for the winch.Both of those lasted well over 10 years.I have owned only Optimas since and have never had a problem.I like the fact,that they can be used in any position and don't leak.I only thought the Yellow tops were boats and the like.But,I have never had any issues like many other posts and will continue to buy them,however,I'm wondering if they will fit in my 2010 in the trunk.The only drawback is the price.I went to purchase another one for my 2001 crew-cab,8.1 and at autozone they were over $200 with tax and at Sams they were $154.Here in AZ,we go thru batteries like crap thru a goose and I want the best and with my experience,I'll stick with the higher priced Optima.
