Great idea but I would say its time for new shiny shovel LOL. This would be cool even on the front of a tool box.

good idea , great use of an item that would have possibly made it to the trash.

a couple bungie cords to hold it down . looks good
oh, and another shovel above the first one... kinda like drinkin, no one wants to shovel alone
