tool carts

I know this may sound like trivial nonsense to most guys but its a time saver at times.
if your like most guys, if your working on your car your constantly getting up, to get the tools you need from the tool box, you make constant trips to the tool box for the next tool, and to put back tools so they don,t get misplaced, or tools you need that you forgot on the previous 20 trips or you put it back and need it again, and if your like most guys you lay the tool down someplace on the car or near the car and then spend a minute looking for it or its constantly falling on the floor or into the engine compartment or rolling under the car,now I like to work with either a tool basket to keep all the tools in one location or a tool cart.
you certainly won,t be the first guy to have a 5 gallon bucket to throw tools in during a car project to keep them centrally located and prevent them from rolling under the car or getting lost in the engine compartments little nooks and hard to access holes in the body work.
having and using the tool cart takes a bit of getting used too, but once your familiar with using it, it usually makes the job much easier, and having a roller seat also helps

the lower shelf on most of these carts works well when your using a mechanics creeper the upper tray when your leaning over a fender or radiator under the hood,

the tool cart is a very valuable tool in itself. saves lots of time keeping things relatively organized i think there are some cart out there that i find kind of useless, ones with 6 drawers and a lid on the top tray like this:

i dont think that shits necessary but i guess everyone has their own style.
