Bronco.........I drilled the spotwelds on my ammo can ribs to where they were "almost thru".........then used a prybar tool to bend the ribs up and away. The welds would usually pop loose (with a loud noise) if I drilled them correctly......only messed 2-3 up by accidently drilling all the way thru the can. Alittle JB Weld fixed those boo-boos.........
My lids are "hinged" on one end just by trimming the box top "lip" enough to where it can swing 180 degrees, and bolting the lid's handle-flap-thingie to the can body.
Also, make sure whatever rear rack duffle-bag you might be using does not hang over the tops of the lids preventing them from being opened!! (my waterproof Wolfman Medium fits just right)
Post pics when you are done with yours!!!!!!!!!!!
(make plans NOW if you have never attended....GREAT Event!!!)
