These seem to be available from several sources. does anyone have experience? Is there a difference.
1974 E9 3.0csi. I'm replacing the boot rubber and about to vinyl paint all the trim which is all pretty good.
My tool box is ok but a bit broken so a new one would be nice.

Thank you gentlemen. I think the only ones I have seen for sale have been the 73 and earlier model from Wallothnesch and another German supplier. I haven't seen a 74 one piece offered
yet. I appreciate the advice.
I'm starting to think there might only be one type available.....

No one makes the 74 style boxes and they are different from the used ones that you see on eBay which are e12, e24 and e28.

Thanks for that advice Chris. I think the one from Germany is probably the answer and I'll have to bite the bullet but its always good to check and the advice here is so good! I note the replacement has a metal screw to close it. Mine has a plastic one.

Pardon my ignorance but can someone show the difference between a “one piece” and “two piece” tool box? I don’t know which one i have :(

The one piece box is just a tray, no upper part mounted to trunk lid, and very thick and hollow feeling, looks nothing like the earlier box.
