Battery Tray Install for Prado 90ser, With ABS - where to put Carbon Canistor?

Hi guys,

WHERE DO I RELOCATE THE CARBON CONISTOR?
I have a 1999 VX Grande with ABS, V6.
Now I have got the battery tray from Piranha -"Prado 90 series (Non-ABS)" as they say they don't have a kit for ABS model.

Now we know that the battery tray is going to mount in the same location and bolt holes as the "Non-ABS" model.
For what I can see the only difference here is where you locate the Carbon canister.
For "Non-ABS" models you would relocate the Carbon canistor over where the ABS would be, in front of brake booster.
Has anyone done this install, any tips ?

I managed to fit the battery tray in after carefully adjusting plumbing under tray a bit (ABS). Carbon canister is shoved in the corner on an angle, still need to move it.
If I can relocate canister, then I can make a bigger batter tray by an inch longer.
This will let me then upgrade Aux battery from 65 Ah to 80 Ah.
