Happy days!
Thanks for the compliment, I'm lucky that my 'Bird was originally owned by Grey Eagle Distributing in the St. Louis, MO area and was used as the Budweiser promotion bus at events like the Super Bowl and many NASCAR races and other events, the 'Bird has many unique features that were custom ordered from Bluebird when it was built back in 1982, that I have either removed to make it more user friendly for my use, or utilized in a different fashion, one of them being one of the large drawers at the top of the entry steps directly under the sink was used to store liquor bottles, in numerous divided compartments and I have used these to store those assortment of tools and other items that I need more often for what you describe that get used more often, such as nuts, bolts and screws, etc. 12 volt light bulbs, electrical tape and so on, so that I don't have to go searching either through the tool box, or other compartments for them. The only problem with this is it sometimes need s to be rearranged and or cleaned out, as it starts to turn into McGee's closet http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibber_...lly#The_Closet.

This will also help explain to Bill Pape why the tools in the tool box look new and not used
