    Custom Toolbox - Recommendations

    Hello awesome Patrollers!

    So - I want to get a custom ally toolbox made. To mount on a roof-bar in-front of my Rhino platform rack (3/4 length).

    I basically want something triangular in section that I can mount a solar panel on the lid of. The shape will have it act like a bit of a deflector and still leave me with gobs of space for stuff like tent-ropes and basic tools etc. The rear of it I can mount to the front edge of my rack. The front I'll mount on rhino-rack feet and bar.

    I'm thinking something like this:

    As a guide to size it'd be near full width - so about 900mm x 250mm high and 500mm deep.

    My question is ... do any of you guys know anyone they can recommend that can make this up for me? I can't weld or I'd have a go myself. I've sent out some emails and so on to a few fabrication joints round here but I'm just getting ignored. Tong Boxes quoted like > $1300 which I think is pretty steep for what it is.

    Anyone here that's handy with a welder wanna make it up for me? Anyone that you guys can recommend I get onto - I'm in Brisbane - but I don't care if I have to get it shipped.

    Any advise gratefully accepted!

    Yeah I agree. I'm not a fan of having a lot of weight on the roof. I only pack light stuff on the roof like bedding etc and only when I have to.

    Guys. It's not going to weigh that much.
    A 2.5m x 1.25m sheet of 8mm check plate is 7kg.
    And it's not going to have anything heavy in it! Just some rope and stuff.

    Of course it could be made lighter by making it into 2 smaller ones - ie. a gap in the middle.

    In any case - any ideas on where I can get something like this made?

    There is a company at Brendale called EuroFlo. He is generally busy but does some very good work at reasonable prices. Glegg manufacturing also in brendale may be able to assist you.

    Thanks Nissannewby. I'll look them up. I have got onto a guy called Matthew at My Toolbox (also out Brendale way). He's being very helpful.
