Battery Cover Needed - Where can I find one

I want to find the part to cover the battery in the trunk of my 1989 325i and have not been able to find one on any of the sites I have looked at. Any ideas on where I might look for this and also what are the dealers calling this part as that might be part of my problem in finding it.

Thanks

cant tell where you are from

The battery should be in the trunk.
Good for weight distribution.

Your battery is under the hood? WTF?

^^^yup, convertable ftw.

I laugh when I think about pulling up to help jump start someones car and then opening my trunk and the dude being like "wtf? your battery's in the trunk?"

I think that'd be funny...

battery under the hood sucks for weight distribution...thats why its in the trunk...

i have had both but i must say i preffer battery in trunk, so much more convenient....especially for jumping(how many times have you had to be in an awkward situation of trying to get 2 cars nose to nose just to connect the wires...seriously, doesnt work well in the side of the freeway/highway lol)/wiring up amps is cake and you still get a + distribution block under the hood...so whenever you need a positive connection under the hood, you still have one...best of both worlds

I think that'd be funny...
I had a buddy that I was going to boost grab the cables and go directly to the front of my car....this is AFTER I had already backed up to his hood. He was like...
dude guy: "why are you going in the trunk?"
me: "because that's where my battery is"
dude guy: "well that's pretty fuckin' stupid!"

...I shoulda' smacked him

I proceeded to extol the virtues of a trunk mounted battery in these cars, he still didn't get it. (he drives an old POS ford, so i really can't blame him i guess)
