That's definitely a You Suck! Did you already clean it up? I know the pictures are not the best, but I don't see any bond dust or overspray.

The pics were after a simple hot water/dove soap wipe down with a micro fiber cloth. You can see in the first pic a few small spots were the dude got some bondo on the box, so I'm gonna try to safely break it down and buff it off.

Overall I'm stoked. Not only is this a bad ass box, but this is an investment. I could work out of this box for 2 years and still sell it for $1200-1500 when I'm ready to upgrade. My Matco tool man came by to look at it today and said he'd give me a $1500 credit on it RIGHT NOW. I told him no thanks.

Certainly one of the best snags of the year so far, on the Professional CL Tool Fishing Circuit! I'm jealous!

It's a great deal for you.

I feel a little bit bad for the kids of the guy you bought it from. Doesn't seem like their dad's got his life all worked out, just yet.

I got such a good deal on my KRL1001 I'm having a tough time selling it. I've been offered 2500 for it but can't seem to let go of it. I'm thinking about buying a top box for it. I have one on the hook but it's pretty far off and a good bit older.

I don't know what sucks worse, watching a perfectly good toolbox get destroyed (mrholeshot's youtube link) or Damian for getting such a steal.

Deal and a half!!

Looks great and will look even better once you get it cleaned up......from what you mentioned in your previous post I thought it would be trashed. Far from it.....a great unit to clean up and keep, especially for the price!

Nice score!

I agree, I have seen some guys paying almost 50% of their gross pay for child support plus day care, medical, and misc. expenses. After the tax man takes his chunk, some guys take a while to adjust to living in their mothers basement eating Ramen noodles.
