I love ammo cans for storage.. simple, watertight and different shapes/sizes... and you can get 'em super cheap.

Paint them red and mount them on the hood. Those freeway maniacs will give you a lot of respect.

well, while waiting for the ammo cases to show up i got on SolidWorks for a few minutes, and based on the dimmentions he gave me, came up with a quick model of how i think i'll be mounting them. i might angle the brackets a little outward to give it a bit of flare:
