Glenn, I was getting my yellow tops from Antique Battery, it took some time but I did get it.
I will need a red top in the near future also

I have gutted three of them so far and hid a lightweight racing battery inside the restoration red cap batteries. Cheaper in cost. Less than half the weight and turns over faster also.
