add some sort of cam buckle straps inside so you can cinch down loose items when the box is not packed full , it will keep things from rattling around , and wearing holes in either the inside of the box or the item that is banging around .

probably the easiest is to put the luggage loops inside the box . for the straps to run through . cheap drawer pulls work well for this.

you could but a couple sets on the bottom and the sides as well .
I use it to keep the first aid kit, tire repair kit from flopping around in mine

Someone likes Paula Reds.

While I haven't done any modifications to my Tough Tote yet, I like what you've done with the bungie cord and loops on the lid.

I insulated my 46 givi with 1in insulation, added a drain with cork, and a 5in deck plate on top. I use it for storage, ice chest and to tote the dog. Will keep ice 2 days easy.
