Box shares a lot in design with Waterloo if you ask me.

Cranky, your box is in way better shape than what this turd started out as. its pretty rough but it matches the original roller cab I got when I started out. I painted it Ford tractor red from TSC. I'm not sure what the store brand of paint is but that's what got used. And the $15 purple HF gun. thumbsup2
Started with nothing and still have most of it left.

Thanks for the info slip knot--this box needs some serious cleaning and has several paint splatters and bumps and nicks as well as the missing lock and broken prop.   I don't have much experience straightening sheet metal, so might work a deal with my autobody bud to flatten out the bumps and than I should be able to sand, prime and paint.   I've had good luck with TSC and Farm & Fleet implement paint on other small projects in the past.   Just a neat older box from the past so it deserves another chance to hold tools.   It should hold most of my Proto collection as I have most of them in two smaller plastic tool boxes which are very heavy to handle and move.  I think the flying lady logo is very neat and would almost lend itself to be like a vintage hood ornament for a nice older auto!!   This was the first vintage proto box in descent shape-most are rusted or beat to Hell that I find in this area-would be neat to find the lower roller cabinet if one was made? myopinion
