It took me a lot of years to get this together and I moved to Canada in 2013, a company shipped my box from Georgia to Prince George BC, and it arrived pretty beat up. 7 months and $2500 in new parts plus a new set of vinyl graphics and she's as good as new again. As you can probably tell I'm into MINI's but I'm 6'2" and 350lbs so getting into a classic Mini is pretty much impossible for me...lol so I have one of the new BMW ones! I love my box and I love Tools In Action, glad to be part of the forum at last!

Thank you very much for your kind words Chris, took me a while but I am finally here. To be honest I was delaying cause I wanted to finish my toolbox rebuild before I joined so I could share my obsession...lol Yes I love Festool, only own 2 of their tools, the CSX kit and their ETS125EQ finish sander I would like more of their stuff but they are a tad expensive...lol

Wow, wow, WOW! Now that's a nice set up. Looks like you have a little ocd with the organization but i too can relate. Welcome to this great crew, hope to see you in the pariscope as well.

thank you! Yeah OCD is a bit of an issue, people usually criticize me cause they are too clean so I must never use them, well I do but I also spend a lot of time cleaning them too, its all about pride and looking after your investment! thanks for the welcome!

I really need to clean my tools up bad. After this painting project shit kinda got out of hand!!

yeah well I've been out of work 2 years DR so i've had lots of time to organize and clean my tools, its gonna be much harder to keep them this clean once I'm working full time again!

i had a 1990 mini city is was called when I was 17 I think rover built them then

yeah City was a model when Rover made them, I worked for Rover back in the mid 90's and back then I could just about drive the classic Mini's....but 20 years and too much beer and food later and my fat ass can't get in one now, but the new MINI's are very roomy and comfy. One day though I want to get hold of a classic and restore it!

Yikes Rover thanks to the stories I heard from Top Gear what Rover put together made anything GM, Ford, or Chrysler made back then look like a well put together luxury automotive. Still some of the Rover cars looked awesome even if reliability was a problem.
