If that box will work the price seems reasonable. I've built plenty of my own things before and even welding it myself if I had to buy mostly new material it would cost almost as much to build one. Otherwise try walking through some commercial vehicle salvage yards and see what might work.

Weird.
Tried the link twice, brought me both times to a "Forum Admin" thread from 2003. One post, titled, "What are these wrenches?"

I don't doubt you for a moment. But it'll have to wait for me to view the forum on my laptop.
The Tapatalk app on Android doesn't show signature lines, and the only way to get to page 55 is to scroll thru all of the preceding 54 pages!
For instance; earlier this week I read up to the 2000th comment on Tango's build, when the app crapped out and closed...
I love the convenience of using my fon to pop in several times a day, but it sorely lacks the full functionality of sitting down to the keyboard & monitor.

You should referance post number and not page number. I have my account set up to show newest first and not the normal newest last. So if there are 65 pages your post might be on page 55, but for me it would be page 10.

Maybe so for you. Not everyone has their account set up as you do. If I said go to page 10 of my build it would send people to the wrong page. Giving the title of my build and the correct page, in sequence, of the build is the actual page of my build.
