Have you applied for a Halfords trade card they give a huge discount off of toolboxes if my memory serves me right i think about 1/2 the retail you only need a couple of pay slips or pprove you are in the trade to register

I gave up on Snap-On a long time ago........their prices are ridiculous and I have better things to spend my money on now.:eek:

MAC do some good boxes,but our local independant dealer does some good quality boxes from Cornwell.They are an American make with a life time warranty,like Snap-on,but they are affordable,unlike Snap-on!.I take delivery of my new roll cab and top box in a fortnight!.I've had Snap-on and Mac boxes up til now,the last one was big enough to move into,but now I need a smaller box so it can be transported from work to home easily.

I'll post some pictures when it arrives,if your interested.I've ordered it in yellow,which should look nice with a few Ferrari stickers on.

Talking of Ferrari,Facom do some nice Ferrari badged boxes,but they are pretty difficult to get hold of........I know,I've tried!.

Sykes Pickavant boxes are OK,but avoid Sealey and other cheap makes.The boxes are made of cardboard!.

Here it is.....





It's a lot smaller than my last toolbox,but everything fits in there(just:rolleyes:),and now I can load the whole thing into the back of my car and use my tools at home.:)

Price wise,it was about 60% of what you'd pay for the equivalent Snap-on box,but quality is pretty much equal.

They come in black,yellow,red or blue.The stickers are optional.;);)

Hey Lag, an X-19 must have a bigger luggage area than I remember, or do you put it in the passenger seat and use a seatbelt to hold it in place :d

I could probably fit the top box into the front luggage thingy on the Exxy,but it would go straight through the floor!

Ah,old Italian cars are fun......:d
