I dislike locating a battery centrally on the shelf because it really reduces your trunk capacity. If it must go on that shelf, I would at least offset it toward the passenger side (to offset the weight of the driver when riding solo) so you still have some storage space on the shelf.

The factory put the battery ahead of the R tail light on later spiders, and I think even put it there on GTV's with A/C. But I have never relocated the battery on a GT to that position, so don't want to say that it should drop right in. Maybe you need to use a smaller battery to make that location work.
