I thought the reason we used gas planes is because then we don't need a field box. 

Glove and a gas can w/pump.

Gas planes don't use a "glow plug clip" and most people don't use a started either. They flip start it with thier hand.

Shawn, I've built a couple but I just make a cardboard one first to ensure all my stuff fits. No plans, just dimensions. Here's a video of my last one and it is very basic. The one before had a drawer in the bottom section which was convenient for tools and parts.

It would probably be easy to add a compartment to your existing box, if it fits your needs. You need some 1/8 plywood, epoxy, screws, and paint.
