Well i decided i wanted a pop rivet look on the box, kind of make it stand out on it's own. I went and bought 1/4" x 1" carriage bolts and nuts. Using a 17/64th drill bit, drilled holes and squared them off a bit for the bolt and then attached them. I plan on tack welding the nuts to the inside of the box frame so they wont come loose.......Here are some pics of what i have done so far today, and I am not even near complete yet, just sharing the look:
