    seems to me you could just spray the bottom of the box and not lose the 3/4 inch of height.

    a few of the things in my toolbox just barely fit.

    yeah could have but reason being, didnt want to drill into my toolbox... thats what the wood is for, i would have used something thinner, had i not had an overwhelming amount of extra 3/4" MDF...

    My old truck box looked nothing like this. It was kind of like the kitchen junk drawer. Only I knew (or thought I knew) where everything was. I have seen SurrealOne's and it is well planned out.
