that was a "toy box" fiberglass box made in onterrible in the late 80's, it used 3/4" plywood for internal structure, and the plywood was rotted out, but it held together ok, so I kept it at first, decided to buy into the hype and switch to synthetic motor oil in all my vehicles, and all my motors siezed in less than 500km's
. for those who care...that was two VW 1.8's, and the 22R in this truck. I did the dub motors myself, with help from a buddy who's a wolfsburg certified VW specialist, and I traded the box to a guy to put in a new motor, do my clutch, and clean up all the wiring for me.
That's why I took the box off.
