well you have battery tie downs that apply pressure then you have the battery acid problem. then you have the material that the batteries are made out of so i think it is a combination of things

just spend the extra cash and get battery covers and boxes. they come in chrome, blue, yellow, red, gold, and black.
i think jc whitney sells them.

Should I primer the batterys first? Also what paint brande is suggested, because some paint wont stick to plastic..
You can get a primer made for plastic. Its an epoxy primer. HOK makes a good one but its pricey. However, it won't peel....

i would just get some sort of covers for the things and paint those. i dont know from experience but im guessing the bar holding them down and acid would probably eat the paint up pretty quick
