I was thinking more along the lines of a pencil case sized box, or Rubbermaid or Tupperware, to be mounted from the top. Those sorts of things generally have a lip around them. Cut a hole the size of outside edge of the box, not including the lip. Silicone glue the box into the hole so the lip, onto which the top goes, stands proud. Black bedliner paint would make it look okay.
I'm just thinking this out as I type this, and I haven't though through a hinge or lock, but there are no end of sandwich and lunch boxes out there that could be adapted.
