Ok back to the subject of the thread. White case batteries anyone? Any parts house got a brand we don't normally see that is white? etc.

Did not find a white battery case but did find this:
Likely hold up better then paint.

It seems that all the chain store batteries today are all black cases. I recently purchased a couple of Mopar batteries from my local FCA dealer and they too are all black. More to the point though it seems that most of these over the counter batteries from the various outlets all appear to come from the same manufacturer(s)as the cases and mold lines seem pretty much identical. That white wrap idea with a topper may be the best solution to mimic the OEM Clear Power short of the look alike Antique Auto Battery replica. Just as an FYI, The AAB replica top looks almost the same as the battery topper. A fairly good likeness, but you can tell it's not the real deal.

  Kevin,  sorry i got off topic but you may want to look into Interstate batteries as they still do make a white 24 group battery but it will have a green top. One of our local parts stores have them in stock.  Lee

I painted my black case battery with a heavy band of pure white Tremclad around the top and then a light spray of white over the whole battery to give a more grey look where the faux fluid level was. I had to give a light sanding with fine sandpaper to give decent adhesion, but I am pretty happy with the look overall.

How about a picture on the finished product. Thus is starting to sound like the kind of thing we have to do.

But then I would get outed on my scruffy engine bay! Seriously, it needs a wipe with a damp cloth, but this should give you the idea.
