Looking for a under seat tool tray

My rear tool box is full of electronics for the flashing brake light and the trailer light converter. Not having a front tool tray was not an issue untill I filled the back one with ^%$*.

Anyone have an extra laying around, it doesn't have to be pretty

Thanks Rob.......... I checked Real OEM and sure enough I saw the other kind but have never seen one. The one I'm after was produced and fitted  from 78-85. It kooks like there was a different seat on the early years that used the "little" tool box..... the one I'm after is pictured below..............

'78-'85 covers three generations of Type 248s.

But yes, the one in the picture appears to be for your '84.

Check this guy out.  I see in one of his tubs, he has what looks like one of each.

They certainly resemble the R65's and that looks like an R65 rear box in there as well.
