    You found caps lock :golfclap:
    Jesus. Now I have some size perspective. Are you planning to get a set of 3/8 in there, too? And is that 1/2 stuff for the jobsite, or do you just like bad mileage?

    Decided to go ahead and build a new box with the revisions I wanted

    3/4" wider , 1/4" shorter , 3/4" narrower at the top , move the hinge location up 1" and add a shelf to hold oddball sockets ( 32mm , 35mm ) extentions and other assorted tools

    Got the case built , and the lid built today , after the glue has set up , I'll cut the opening portion of the lid out and mount the hinge

    Old prototype box on the left , new box on the right

    Used the tray as a pattern and drilled through the lid front , and attached 1/4"x2"SS carriage bolts

    [​IMG]

    Mounted the socket tray

    [​IMG]

    Loaded it up with these tools

    They are held in with interior panel pins and a couple screws

    The driver's side overlaps the passenger side

    Others have unbolted the rear seats , I didn't , but it would certainly have been easier in hindsight

    Wonderful. I tried one night to pull the passenger side and didn't pay attention to the fact the driver's side overlapped. Guess I know what I'm doing in the morning!

    There are bolts through the mid lip in the panels , then it's just a matter of working the pins loose

    I broke a couple but I took one down to my auto parts place and was able to match it up and buy a package of replacements

    Why are you removing the panels ?

    I think I would rather do a 2nd battery in the engine compartment and save that area for dry storage myself but still an impressive use of the space

    Saw another with a cap and storage bins with a fridge on rails.

    Plus I was thinking you could place a compressor in the battery section of the engine, that way you dont get the buzzing of the compressor inside.

    Can't you do a dual battery at the factory battery spot and add a compressor on the passenger side where Ant mounted his ?
