Hello there.  Do suffer from chronic loathing of blank surfaces, a feeling that that dilapidated wall is missing something, or have you ever been sitting through yet another mind numbing boardroom meeting thinking, "Man this place could really use some more color." Well here's your cure:  The Gentleman's Tag Bag!

It gives you all the room you need to pack all the essentials, for today's fast paced spray paint enthusiast.

There's room for four full sized cans of paint, respirator, sketches, maps, and now including the new Spray Paint Cap Organizer (A completely new innovation only available through Thingiverse).

And here's how you too can have your very own.

Step 1: Bill Of Materials

Bill of Materials.

1)  1 4-1/2 Thick Briefcase
2)  4 Spray Paint Can Mounts (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:32236)
3)  1 or more of my totally innovative Spray Paint Cap Organizers (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:32288)
4)  8 M5-0.8 X 10mm Black Button Hex Head Screws
5)  8 M5-0.8 Nuts
6)  Industrial Strength Velcro Tape
7)  4 Spray Cans
8)  1 Respirator of your choice
9)  Minimum 12 Spray Can Caps (Montana Style)
10)  Rubber Gloves
11)  Whatever else you use with your art.

Step 2: Purchase your choice of not awesome briefcases

Purchase a 4-1/2" thick briefcase.  You need to get the thicker briefcase to accommodate the spray cans.  I recommend looking at your local salvation army or goodwill for a deal.  I got this one for cheap off of Amazon. 

Step 3: Time to melt some plastic

Next you're going to need to either print a few parts or beg you buddy with a 3D printer to print you the following:

1 or more of my innovative new Spray Paint Cap Organizers (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:32288).  This is a product you can only find through Thingiverse as before 10/12/12 it didn't exist.  So that's pretty cutting edge.

Step 4: Time to Lay Out Your Mounts

Next using a white colored pencil (I suppose chalk might work too) mark the outline the position of the mounts and there holes.

Looks good except you might want to add a false bottom and drill into that so you are in no danger of having any hardware poking through. If you are worried about bounce then velcro the false bottom into the case after fixing the mounts. PAX

Yeah, a false bottom is a brilliant idea. It just never occurred to me. Ill put it in my notes for next time. Thanks.
