Needed a tool box for hitop , hopefully I won't break down but just in case, it's a folding handle hazet assistant but someone went mad with yellow paint ! I applied oven cleaner then jet washed it this got a fair bit of the yellow paint off .so the nitromorse was applied quickly and immediately wiped off with the yellow paint.

It looks like a late model, Interesting that it has no hazet badges on the bottom tray, it does have the black top tray and has two black knobs. Do you have to screw down the knobs to lock the trays? If not this is another sign of a late model...late 80's early 90's...
