    Last night I hard mounted an ammo can to secure my compressor rather than have a flailing death compressor bouncing around in the back of the truck. I removed the tie-down point in the right rear of Mimi and drilled a 10mm hole in the bottom of the can. I then used a longer bolt stolen from my crank pulley puller collection and a transmission bushing for a spacer.

    I like the patina on the ammo can. Are you worried there might be rust that forms with the new hole in the floor of your truck?

    Edit: Or did I misunderstand and you used an existing tie down and modified it to fit the can?

    I used the existing threaded hole for the tie-down.

    Compressor won't fit in that cubby or what?

    There's no cubby there, that's rear HVAC. The cubby on the other side is not strong enough.

    Murphy's Law says that tomorrow you'll need to pick up 4x8 sheets of plywood...

    Great idea!
