The medal one I got from a friends junk yard door keys and all I paid 20 bucks for.It has brackets the screw into the roof supports so you would have to put holes in your headliner.Years ago just starting out as a sound tech for a small local band,"The Charles", they had a Ford Econoline van and no wall.Coming back from SYR after a gig late at night in a bad snow storm on 90 the van started to spin out.I remember the kick drum case hitting me in the back of my head.I saved it ,but the kick drum case was alittle worse for wear once I got done with it. :twisted: :lol: :lol:

Im trying to figure this out too, I found a plexi security division on craigslist with no door out of a 2002. Its pretty neat in that its completely clear and heavy duty, like a cab divider, but I have to cut some kind of opening in it.

However, wanted to mention that you can ship huge stuff via greyhound or Amtrak for super cheap, they just throw it under the bus and it gets there when it gets there, so it has to be boxed or protected nice nice. I had a guy send me a PAIR of front fenders in one box from CA to new england under a greyhound, cost about 75 bucks. The box was 5 feet x 4 feet x 3 feet, and an odd shape too, like a giant letter L.
