Cavity oil gun container

Made from an old plastic grease container and an original Shutz underseal can. I also had to shorten the gun pick-up pipe.

I use from a 50:50 mix to 75:25 (oil:white spirit) mix. Soaks into seams, small gap filling, never really dries. Long lasting. Great value. Easy clean-up.

Converted to a tool trolley (crash cart). Better than any other OEM tooling cart I’ve ever seen. It won’t rust.

Fabricated some drawers for it. They can slide right out but are otherwise retained by the runner design.

Different runner heights make it extremely adaptable.

Its best asset is it can live outside. Other benefits; It won’t hold liquids (rain, oils, etc.). I can leave it empty, load it up with tools and work on my vehicles with a place to organise stuff I take off (airfilters, cam covers, trims, fasteners, etc.)
