Paranoia.

But, I'm going to play center field for Murphy'* Law and tell you with all the stuff you have, and when it does come time for the **** to hit the fan, you won't have what you need.

One thing you can add, which is just an ounce more of security, go to walmart and BUY a cheap flip cell phone. But don't activate it. I know in the US, all cell phones regardless of activation status, STILL must be able to call 911. Stuff it in the glove box with its own dedicated charger.

I don't keep anything more than what will fit in my milk crate normally. Usually a bottle of oil and coolant, spare belts, flashlight, portable compressor, rags, and a couple misc items. That'* just my rule of thumb for maintaining usable trunk space. Of course right now all my tools and my detailing chemicals are in there as well (due to living in Air Force single housing)

Art,

Hope to have the time to do what you did with your trunk. I also store some of my auto chemicals in a black storage trunk like you have. After a few moves, some of those containers have leaked and I need to now clean all my containers in the trunk. Almost think I should put the chems individually in a zip lock freezer bag in case the leak they stuff won't get on all the rest of the containers.
