fiberglass toolbox for pickup

Hi all

I am still going through the tons of thread on fiberglassing and was
wondering it was a good idea as a first time project to build a pickup bed toolbox?

there are available toolbox usually made of aluminum, steel or plastic.

I was thinking of buildng a protype using cardboard and layer it with fiberglass.

What kind reinforcement do you think is needed to achieve a good enough strength into the glass?. Will sandwiching a steel screen with glass will help?

thanks for any ideas.

I think if I were going to do this, I'd weld up a 3/4" angle iron frame and drill it full of holes so the resin would have some bite.
