i'd recommend trying to get a replacement of approximately the same age/condition if possible.

Wow, that is not good! Glad your OK. Usually there is a letter and number stamped in the post of the battery. Example, E7 would be May 2007 production. Good luck and be careful. Also, I would get in there and wash everything with a baking soda and water mixture to eliminate any acid corrosion...

That's October of 05, I would say it's about time for a new set! Don't worry, it will only be between $600-$900.00 for a good set.

Yes, post some pics! Load the picks on your puter and reply to this thread. Click on the paper clip on the tool bar, then find you pic on the puter, double click it then hit upload. Glad your OK. That would REALLY suck to get a battery acid enema!!!!!!!!
