Awesome. You should start making these and selling them.

I'm thinking more about posting patterns that can be taken to a local sheet metal shop since I can't even make time to finish this one ! Here are my tool box patterns (without measurements) & a galvanized test piece. Comparison old to new - I just went with a shallower box, since I don't really use it for much & have plenty of storage space in the 110. I figure this will be the side that gets customized more by others, depending on what they use it for. Tool box clamped in place. Looks like I'll be installing a seat box this weekend!

Interesting product that extends seat rail without added height

For those of you looking for a faster option

I had to add a 3/4" offset to the battery box to miss hitting the support arm on my sliders. Alumaseal to fill the cracks, so water and crud don't accumulate where I can't see it. The new seat box can use the old covers. Parking brake lower location - holes drilled.

I had layered angles at the front top edge that gave me a dip down (Land Rover pressed the original seat box panel up to fill this gap), so I added sound liner and sandwiched it with another piece of aluminum. Sound liner in the tool box - I'll top it with a piece of aluminum in the bottom.

My old tool box has a large plastic plug in the bottom. Is this just to drain/clean? I can't see another purpose for it to be there.

Hit a snag. Placed my Scheel-mann seat brackets & double checked clearance to the doors. I am also installing a Safety Devices interior roll cage that will not allow the new seats to recline - So much for my precise calculations. I have to make the center raised section narrower and lower it 1" to allow moving the seats in enough to clear the roll cage.

Fortunately, the raised section is a separate piece - today I made it 1" lower (which allows the seat edge to clear the raised center), brought the passenger side in 1.5", drivers side .5". Widened each side & made a smaller opening to the tool box, along with a new cover. All so I could squeeze the seat brackets as far in as possible (so much for being able to use some of the original parts). In order to assemble the brackets, and for future access, I drilled a .75" hole in line with the bracket bolt - easy to seal with a grommet. Back to being ready to install it this weekend!
