The toolbox looks pretty good. I like it. How did you fastened it on the rack? Only some screws through it?

For right now its fastened down w/ 1in tap screws that go thru one of the main supports for the rack. plan to run 1/4in bolts later. It was windy as all hell the day I installed it which made keeping the lid open a PITA.
Total cost was $70 w/ all materials and steel and I got it powdercoated for free at work.
