That little space under the seat
« on: December 31, 2010, 12:13:41 AM »
You know the space right there under both the driver and passenger seats we're all going to shove tools, rags, guns, whatever into until it's full and all the shit flys forward to the firewall when you stop quick.  Well, I really got tired of shoving stuff back in there, so I bent up some steel from an air conditioner housing (recycling, keeping it green all that really because it was free) and tacked some #9 wire around the top, and screwed a pair of wood runners on the bottom.  The box looked so good I squirted it with a rattle can, after confirming it slid in and out of course.  Then I added a strap handle arrangement.

It won't be the best tool toter, but it will be better than a sharp stick in the eye.

I even installed a safety strap across the front of the underseat area in the van with a snap.

About 2 years from now Chevy and or Ford will offer it as a $100- option.
