just the herculiner spray on stuff. 8 bucks a can at vatozone. lol

all i did was drill out the rivets for the kobalt badge and then just taped off the lock cylinder then used rivets to reattach the badge for that clean look.

Looks great. What's the difference in all of the brands of toolboxes that I see?

I was looking at Tractor Supply's boxes yesterday. I see you have a Kobalt.

Is there any quality difference in all of these brands?

true, its not horribly small. but I'm used to putting all my stuff in a full size toolbox, which is nice. other than the latches, I like it, and the price is good so I might pick one up. I cant really get a bigger one, since I need to haul my bikes.

yeah its smaller then a regular tool box, but perfect for what i need. my last tool box was one of the larger ones that rose about 8" above the bed rails and it just killed my rear visibility. this thing doesnt hurt it a bit. it just blocks my pedo bear sticker >:|
