Battery Clearance from Exhaust System.

Setting up the battery box under the floor boards in my "A" coupe. The box will be in the stock location (18" to 24" behind the header pipe.) The exhaust pipe will run under the box. What's the minimum clearance between the exhaust and the battery?

The exhaust on my Tudor is about 3" from the battery. I made a heat shield out of 1/8" thick aluminum that sets about 3/4" from the battery. Haven't had any issues.
