    Go to the one on Auburn.... you work off of 65th and Folsom right? Just take Folsom to Watt, left turn and follow it to Auburn and turn right. It'll be on the left hand side down aways.... neat little store!

    Yep, I work on 65th...

    Yeah, I'll check it out tomorrow.

    I might buy one or two and cut and make my own.

    Then buy one of those cup holders with the arm rest from Autozone or Kragen...

    You going to Prairie City on the 18th?

    Thanks

    Next time you're in Reno check out Twin Cities Surplus. They have all kinds of large ammo boxes.

    check out cheaper than dirt for some stuff. They are pretty cool for military stuff and they have a great mailing catalog. Look under Military surplus/Ammo Cans
