~§~

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

Added some heavy duty handles (made from recycled aluminium scaffold poles). The extruded aluminium channel sections were recycled from a luton van.

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.)
