After the Gincident of 2020 I needed a more reliable way to supply my pandemic alcoholism (kidding... kinda) and get bottles back from the local spirits dealer. Fitted a wine crate with bottle inserts. If I add some foam padding I think I could roll with 6 bottles. Looks a bit precious, but works a charm.

I like it!

I've just been stuffing wine bottles in the cowl glovebox and I can usually only fit four at a time.

Sweet.
Okay thinking out of the box (hahaha):
Buy another crate. Cut 2/3rds or so off the height. Turn it upside down. Two hinges in back, one latch in front. Lid for a 9 bottles (or helmet) box.
My wife orders wine online. The foam inserts they use would be so perfect there.
Cheers

And there’s certainly no reason to fear a breakdown 😁

Re:Hinged lid...

There ya go. It does have a lid that slides in...
I just need to find a way to keep it from vibrating off. A wee latch would suffice for sure. Hinged lid and increased volume will go in the “Future project” column.


I do like that the box is easily removable. Can revert to full shitbox status in a snap.

I need that whole set up. Great case. Been trying to find an OG Pearl Beer case but they sure are spendy when they do pop up for sale.

Yeah those vintage boxes are spendy. Couldn't find a roomy and sturdy enough one with a lid after many hours spent on ebay.
I think they're on to us.

Latch is stainless and lockable. I use an airline bag lock with a combination 000. Too many homeless guys here to risk losing a helmet. To their credit, they don't do numbers well.
