Storage space of any kind is a rare commodity in my little pick-up truck, so I considered it a windfall to discover a hollow niche behind the seat that’s just right for stashing a few sets of plans out of the way. I stacked three pieces of 3-in. plastic conduit atop one another, and tied them together with tie-wire. On the passenger side, the conduits are capped. I strapped the conduits in place with an elastic chord wrapped around the seat framework, and voila-no plans rolling around inside the cab.
