What did you use to make the foam sections. And FYI you could do it cheaper at lowes or home depot with shower walling cut to size. It's just like dry erase but marker doesn't erase as easy or at all if you leave it to long.

Lol actually its funny I already knew that because I write on my wall in the shower and it's still there in dry erase. I actually got tired of dropping screws and waisting paper so I figured I would make this to knock out two irds with one stone. It's foam I think for your tool box. You can get it at Sears, your supposed to draw your tools on it and cut the shapes out.

I was so hoping for something easier. lol I have built full floor boxes for maintenance work on jets. After one drawer screw that mess.
Good work on you though - it looks clean and simple.

Hey thanks it wasn't that bad with a new sharp hobby knife blade cut clean through. What sucked the most was measuring.

So after missing this rig way to much I made a barter with the guy I traded and got it back. Basically just the chassis and panels I will be rebuilding this rig with the best if the best (VP Duh) and reprint it another color. Really all up in the air right now but this will be being built over the rest if the year. Thank god I have my Jk almost built so that I don't go out spend money to fast to get it going. Well here are the pics of what I have (not alot)

Lol oh no this one was driven hard by me with all the VP stuff and will be again.
I just just to a point if nothing else could e done and on a whim I traded it off. I feel like this is a clean slate to build it all over again. You can see by the paint missing I love to drive this one hard

Parts are slowly rolling in and got what was left on the chassis torn apart to be taken to a buddies shop so I can sand blast it along with the panels

Wow that turned out really well. The finest sand must have been used on that. Normally I see pitting in the panels but none could be found. It looks like it came off the assembly line. Let me guess on color..........Gunmetal!
