Old toolbox

I bought a old tool box from a junk store for R150


I cleaned it up with soap, water, sanding paper and a LOT of elbow grease. I banged out most of the dents with a set of panel beating hammers I got years ago at a second hand store. The side and base had pulled away from each other so I glued it together with a two part metal epoxy.

I gave it a coat of grey for the outer side, red for the inner trays and black for the handle. 
After all my cleaning, the trays was not clean enough so the spray paint did not stick. 

I had to clean it up with a scraper and some thinners. I covered them in a under coat and sprayed again. This did not work either. So with some more scraping, cleaning and an other type of spry paint it was finally done.
