Default Battery tray

Ok so installed new stainless battery tray. notched the corners to to fit in factory location. However in an attempt to drive the car to a cruise not in a rush I test fit the radiator and boom. the upper radiator hose port hits the battery hold down. I am looking a billet specialties battery tray that straps long ways over the battery to hold it down as a solution.

So question is any pictures of battery tray to radiator hose clearance?

Thanks again.

I used the factory battery tray and made my own hold down to lock the battery in place. It's close but had adequate clearance to the radiator.
