Now the problem is, where do I store it on the tractor ?
So I dug up this small metal box and decided to make a tool box out of it.
This has a bracket on the back for it to fit over a flat tab mount.
I welded a piece of flat steel to a bracket on the back of the frame.
The box fits nicely on this flat mount.
Here you can see the clearance between the box and the rear wheel.
This is bolted to the side of the frame from inside the box.
This box doesn't have any latch on it so I took one off an old machinist tool box and put it on this box.
This also allows me to put a padlock on it.
Here is the finished tool box.
I painted it with the same paint that was used on the wheels and the seat.
Apparently the color changes as the paint ages.
