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.
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?
