    Default Plexyglass-glass cases for your grails?

    I am looking for a case to put inside the carts I love more. Is there a project or someone selling something that would work?
    I think that a perfect case would be transparent, not sticky to the cart in the long time, against uva to avoid sunfading, strong, small and capable of keeping your cart tight. Maybe a glass case? Or a plexyglass case?
    I am talking about a case for single pieces.
    A plastic transparent box would be not so beautiful to see.

    Any idea is appreciated.

    There's a guy in the Action Figure scene who makes these really nice custom plexi cases for StarWars and other carded figures.

    I'll ask my mate for his website/contact details if you like?

    I've been wondering the same thing for a while...

    There's a local place near me who specializes in making custom display cases for sporting memorbilia, i've been thinking of seeing what they can do.

    Default not that hard

    plexyglass isnt that hard to work with. just go down to osh and buy a few sheets. it doesnt shatter so i think you can use screws in it with pilot holes.(never actually tryed screws) there are also alot of industrial strength apoxys that will work even better perfectly. i've built 1 basic case with apoxy and plexyglass and it took maybe an hour in total and 15 bucks. (used it for a hd enclosure)
    also there is a good tutorial for bending plexy i had in my favorites a while ago, i cant find it now though. sorry.

    I've though alot about this as well, not just hard cases, but all protective measures. I think you have to be careful with the materials used, since they might degrade the condition of the item it is "protecting" over long time periods. I also think it would be better to leave a game able to breath as opposed to airtight. Maybe the sun would react with the acutal game and vaporize some harsh chemicals.

    I'm not too knowledgeable on the subject, but had I the opportunity to put all of my games in protective cases, I probably wouldn't.
