Default Junk in my trunk- more truck remodeling

The compartment under my welding machine has had a bolt bin and a lot of junk in it, and my grinders, etc were on the other sie of the truck.
So I cleaned out the junk and fixed that compartment to hold rod cans, grinders, clamps air arc, etc. The bolt bin and pipe fittings, etc,will go to the other side.
1st pic is the stuff from the front comp
2nd pic is the former grinder comp.
next is tubing to hold rod cans
last is the finished box.

Thanks for looking

Jeff, one thing about orginizing your needed tools, they can be found when you need them and will be better protected when you do.

Well done. The last pic actually does say it all.

Now if we could get Sberry to use his Caddy for something else than a work truck, we'd be doing something. lol Good thing he has leveling shocks on the thing.

I have the setup on the passenger side for supplies, bolts, fittings and some tools. The things I really use are on the drivers side, right about under the tape measures I have 3 bins with misc flat washers, nuts and bolts.

Nothing worse than being in the middle of the field, away from the shop and have to shut down to go get a 1/4" washer. lol

Lets be honest with ourselves here...
1. it looks fantastic.
2. It won;t stay that way for long.
3. organized piles of crap are still pile of crap.

Or, all good reasons for why I refuse to clean my computer desk.
