    Here are the photos of a small toolcart I have been wanting for a couple of years. I could have bought a chinesium steel one but I had some material left over from another project. I kicked out a quick cad print of what I wanted and knocked this out last weekend. The paint color is the same as my parts storage shelf-scanned in from a Mopar sales brochure and custom mixed at our local Lowes.

          The color was on one of the new challenger brochures from a few years ago. I scanned the red and the blue and used both in the finish of my shop/garage. I cant remember what they called the blue but upon reflection you are right-looks like Petty blue:)

                It is a PDF file, if you have the PDF software on your computer it should open when you double click the little arrow.
                I work in VCadd V6.0, I use it for my job designing large pumping plants. I also use it for all my personal things including things automotive.
                I mocked up my tire/wheel combo on VCadd to make sure it would work before I bought the wheels and tires. Nice little tool to have:)

                  I also built a portable work bench. It worked great for when I put my Cuda back together. I used the metal from a shipping container to build the cart.
