I have a bunch of these Instant Gatorade containers that I use for nuts and bolts etc. I noticed the other day that the sides might be good to use for the floor of a truck bed or for tin wall or fence panels if your into dioramas. Posted Image

Truck bed? Yeah, paint it black and use it as a bed liner.

If thats what I think it is it's high density polyethelen. Which doesn't take paint that well.
