Send him a PM if you are interested....
I've been chatting with another forum member about doing the sub-floor storage box install (there's a couple options I think we've seen that are fabbed either out of steel or possibly also aluminum --- ?)
I've been personally a little reluctant to install a steel version, only because of future rust concerns. Was starting to think that it would be a good idea to treat it somehow (or possibly have it powder-coated) before installing one of those....but the costs all start to add up and look like a less attractive "return on the investment" for all the money and installation effort.
Plastic for a box material sounds great. Thick and rust-proof. Are there pictures or a thread that gives more info yet?
Somewhere recently on the forum I saw what looked like a robust, gasketed plastic lid for accessing the sub-floor storage area (one of the forum member pictures that popped up randomly along the top of the home page) and it looked pretty nice.
These are links to images from SMBF member teeots
in his albums of the storage lid I thought looked interesting.
