I have not done that yet......
I was going to do that last year.........
Was going to do it this year........
But it keeps sliding down my list of things to do.
My plan is to purchase four 1/4:20 Stainless Steel, Truss Head screws and s.s. nylock washers and four 1/4" s.s. washers along with some black, nylon webbing. I plan to mount two straps for each case to hold the lid at 90 degrees when open.
What I have been doing, is to pop the catches, let the lid drop on my knee, retrieve what I want, slam the lid closed and snap the catches closed. I've done it so many times that I don't even think about it anymore!
However, the reason that I do want to do this is to provide a "worktable" of sorts out of the lid. I can cook on it with my stove. Or, cook on one side and eat off of the other "table" on the other. Play solitaire?
I will post pictures when I do this. I have to be around next weekend, maybe I could tackle the project then.
