    Heres what I have in my files. Most folks show the suitcase one. As with most things Dutch, Thats the way it is. In the Ganahl book, he says the striping on the suitcase box is prolly 70's or 80's vintage. There are some great insside and outside pics in the Ganahl book of the suitcase box

    Thanks Caffeine. That could well be the situation. I file these pictures, but I never remember where they come from. Its for sure the suitcase was used by Dutch on occasion, but most question if it really was his dads.
    On another topic, The pics you posted of your garage got me started sheetrocking MY shop..
    I hate you... I've been at it for almost a month, and have hung over a half acre of rock. I'll be happy to never see a trowel again !!!!@

    the problem with some of those paint boxes is weight. i had a big ol box and it was COOL as hell, but a BITCH to really carry around.

    the good thing is you can use em for step stool etc.

    even my black 2 drawer is heavy.

    i saw a COOL box this weekend that i have my eye on ill post some pics if i can find another like it ;)

  7. The clothing label owners will probably buy the thing and start repopin' them for the "cool" kids. :rolleyes:
     
  8. John St. Morton was repoping Von Dutch tool boxes.

    No idea how close they matched the original,or if they are still available.

    i really dig "neat" boxes, small, big, craftwork, etc.

    one of my next projects is buiding a small travel box for my pinstriping stuff, going to try to make it small and light.
