Only downside is: I had to eat all the cookies!

Put a little neoprene, dense foam, or other type of insulate in there and you'll be good to go.

Make sure you isolate them from the box...

Gil - that is super cool!

Here is my 10m/CB, 10m dipole, 2m HT, and 50' of coax (not pictured, but coiled tightly and fit snugly inside the box.

Then the box is latched together and stowed in my truck. I have another with the identical set-up in my sons vehicle.

I added an additional layer of EMP protection - with placing the electronics in these:
Tech Protect Bags

The cookie tin is pretty impressive - because it's simple and elegant - but it generated a question: do I need to ground my set-up, similar to the way Gil has grounded his cookie tin?
If you're looking for me, you're probably looking in the wrong place.

Well, it's not grounded. The lid is electriclly connected to the box. I did that because the box is painted, and I wasn't sure there was a good electrical contact between the two.
