    I'd been using tupperware tubs for squeegee and stuff,but fancy something neater but not those expensive wooden storage units I've seen.

    This is for keeping in van like.

    What do you guys use?

    1x1 timber to make frames to store everything in is what I'm going to be doing once I get a van in the next few weeks, each compartment will be big enough to hold storage boxes of tools, plus all the wfp gear I'm waiting for. Everything will have a place then and won't move around

    Chipboard painted black, you could do it in plastic sheeting but the thickness you need is about £80 a sheet. Personally I would use marine ply wood, then paint it with decent hard wearing paint otherwise it will rot

    Buying the pre made set up at 140 is starting to sound like an easier solution, it's got quite a few shelfs too. Will need to make sure this 500 litre tank will fit too though
