ordered a new tray for the tool box and bought some stuff to use as a drawliner on the new cheap tool box

second socket tray for the 1/4 and 3/8 AF sockets to go with the MM tray.

also had a sort out of the other socket rail and you can see the material i used for the liner

most of these are 1/2" but are rarely used, the used ones are in the roll cab.

 

should have the exhaust sorted later this week just need to bash some metal.to get correct shape and fit.

Looks neat - is the idea of the housing to keep heat in the exhaust to aid flow or for aerodynamics?
