I'm looking for a case or something close to it to store my sled on the camera truck shelf without having to dismantle the gear. Don't want to remove a thing except the camera.

I would trick it out with foam of course.

Any ideas?

Innerspace cases made that exact thing for me a couple of years ago. Case with loose lid, according to my needs, $250

I got a Pelican Storm case IM2950 and Kaizen foam that I cut myself.

All I have to do is angle my monitor to a right angle position and shrink the sled back. So easy.

Nice Job Victor. The foam is pretty cool. I'm looking for a case big enough that I don't have to collapse the sled at all.

Being lite is a requirement as well. I may have found it but for some reason I can't paste the link in this space.

Anyone know why?

I use the pelican 1730 and pull out the rear hinge pins so the lid comes compltely off. Just pull off the batts and it goes right in. I wanted the assistants to have to do as little as possible -- just pull the sled out and put on the stand/cart

I'd be interested in seeing your solution when you find it, Ramon.
