I have a Pelican 1500 top box. Has anybody mounted tool tubes to the sides of a top box? I tried to find pictures of any bike with that set up but failed. I'm afraid that if I mount the tool tubes to top box, the bike will look like a rocket launcher or a Spacehip.

I wanted to paint them like rocket boosters, but that sounded like work. Decided on the Buell pegasus instead. Anyway, holes: sealed? Unsealed? Also, loving the reflective tape idea.
