Hi Kip, trust you are well.
The charge indicator on a battery is a built in Hydrometer, but only really checks one cell.

Ello Ello, Evening All. Bend of the knees , etc.
Any  bright spark out there who can tell me how the internal charge condition light works in a car type battery.
The one you hope is green.
Just curious.

Very soon will be starting on "Go Go Escargot". A car engine based camper trike.
Donor vehicle is going to be a 2l VW Passat diesel.
Long term plan is to toddle of into the European sunshine for several months going wherever.
Hopefully in 2019.
Will keep you posted in due course,
Kip

What is the PCB for?How badly damaged is it? If the copper circuits have been damaged/dissolved by the acid they could be replaced by soldering wires across, are any components damaged? I've done this when a copper track has "blown" due to some idiot apprentice applying  too high a voltage to an ECU!!!

Anyone recommend someone to repair a damaged (by leaked onboard battery) printed circuit board please?

It's a Prusa i3, came as a kit and took a day to assemble, only cost about £500 and prints very well. I mainly print ABS parts.

Looks good! 3D printing is the way forward. I spent the last couple of years working on 3D printing metals. I have a fused deposition printer (Markforged) in my office just for having fun on! Sabrina has a few printed bits on her. I've toyed with the idea of buying one for home but it seems silly to sped the money when I've got ready access at work. What sort of printer have you got?
