tool box opinions

ok, i have nasty white toolbox that came with my truck. its starting to rust. i dont really want to put in a ton of time and money, but have been wondering what it would take to stop the rust and make it look nice and not look like i took a paint roller to it.

i plan on wire grinding off the rust, and then using something like rustoleum. but i dont want it to look spray painted (you know that cheap look spray paint has in the sun...) id like to rhino line it but dont want to spend that kind money on this old arse box.

thoughts? ideas?

Use a flap disc in a side grinder, and buff off all the noticeable rust spots. Get the surface to a semi smooth state.

Welcome to Pro Form Products

I like this stuff, gives the texture of boxliner, so it will hide pretty serious surface flaws.You can paint it to the desired color when its dry. The only problem with it is that if you do not paint it (its black) it will fade a bit in the sun.

It goes for ~$5.00 a can, would probably take 2-3 cans to do a toolbox. 1-2 if you only do the sides people see
