a tool box is useless without good working drawers

With the right approach and patience that is going to be a great toolbox. I'd work every angle to try to get SO to warranty the sliders.

Nice find.

how did it fall over? too many drawers open at once or did someone not tighten it down on a trailer?

My understanding is the box had too many drawers open at once.
I would never ask Snap-On to warrantee those slides. Not my style.
Going to go back to work on it for a while, was out garage saling this morning LOL

I have done what I can with the box. The bottom is good, the top is not worth fixing. Those slides just cost too much money and I had to use all the good top slides for the bottom. I still could use one or two more sets, some of the drawers are a little stiff. Will sell the top box on Craigslist, see if I can get $100 for it lol. Here's some after pics.

Don't you recognise the "bluebolt" handle CorvetteChris LOL.

Or maybe if I posted a pic of my Sonic Blue 2003 Ford Lightning.

You going to Thunderroad raceway this season?

It took me a minute, but I got it now. I saw the craigslist post and thought, "I've seen that picture before". haha

I actually thought I came across a decent deal, but just a little late. Not that I needed it anyway.

I definitely want to make it out there a couple times this year

i'd leave the top on the box, just put a computer monitor in it, a keyboard, and a vertical computer tower

Just sold the top box for 50 bucks! Guy had the exact same box but a bit rusty from sitting outside, he got what he needed to repair it and I am now only $50 bucks into this box!

That was a hell of a score! I would have put a 25 inch flat screen TV in the top box

The guys who bought the top box just stopped by and GAVE me a set of locks and key for the bottom box since I didn't have a key. It's good to know there are still nice people in the world!
