Toolbox

I just removed my toolbox from my box.
Now obviously there are 4 holes from the bolts. What is the best way to fix them so I can avoid having the holes rust on me?

Re: Toolbox

They best way is to weld the hole shut, but if your not able to do that I would think making shure the edges and back got paint on them and there isnt any bare metal.

Re: Toolbox

you might wanna sand down the edges of the hole and apply a little bit of rust-stop acid liquid stuff...don't get it on the paint!! after that dries up, dab/spray some primer on them.

are you going to keep the toolbox off permanently?

Re: Toolbox

Good point about keeping it off[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img] might not wana fill the holes.

Eventually primer will rust through, follow with some regular paint.

Spray on some bedliner. Then undercoat the bottom.
