Default Battery Box Help 1/8 conversion

I have converted 2 of my nitro's to brushless and I got a battery box with one of the conversion kits. However on one of my cars I had to make my own battery box but It looks hideous. I cant find a box separate to a conversion, but I my be using the wrong key words. I have seen a hpi battery holder but I am unsure if I can accommodate my car to fit it. can anyone help (any advice is helpful)

Depends, what are you converting?
For some buggies there used to be conversion kits but today there are so many purpose built ebuggies not sure if they're still available.

I have a Hobao Pirate Mt So it is quite old and I have the motor mount and everything is mounted just struggling to find the battery box. Not bothered if I have to modify or drill the chassis either.

"Monster Mike" (rc-monster.com) will make custom size battery boxes. Look in the RC-Monster store for rc-monster parts.
