How about polished stainless steel? Another member suggested the link below. They might be able to help you.

I've searched most of the dozens of places that I have on my bookmarks for "under the hood" accessories and couldn't find one that had a battery cover. ACC (here in Florida) as mentioned above, does a custom one (like mine) but it's expensive and also used one of the hood surround bolts to keep it in place. A PITA to undo if you need to get to the battery itself.

I would not recommend putting anything metal or conductive over the battery. I have enough underhood oops moments where I've learned not to ask for it. I've also had the starter solenoid stick, and I needed yank the battery cable to stop my starter from cranking.

Be careful with your cover and keep the tools on hand to remove it.

Cool Re: Battery Cover Wanted

I actually made my own battery cover from plexiglass, heated with a torch and bent.
Made my own hood prop too, and had a local glass shop cut letters in the back side/backwards....then painted it myself.
(I do have an extra blank hood prop cut out if you are interested)
