pelican cases for wee strom

Hi ,
So .... is there anyone who knows the ropes concerning mounting pelican 1550·s on a wee? Can anyone who·s the least bit handy (not me) fit the buggers and how? Which rack system can one use with a good result? Is there a dealer of the whole lot in the UK (thought about picking it up when I·m at UK meeting)?
It·s bloody awfull being so fumblefingered .
Cheers.... and yes.... love and peace.
Dan

Cool Yes

Yes, I made my rack out of Aluminum angle iron from the hardware store, for my V-Strom DL1000 same rack. I took the rack off found the center drilled the strips bolted the top-case on, put the rack back on, bent the aluminum strips down and then ran another strip from the passenger-peg to the two (2) strips from the top-case and cut off the excess. I'm looking for my camera, as this is prolly useless without photos.

Talking Found Some Photos :)

Found some photos






These were took with a regular camera as I haven't been able to find my digital, so they're a little scratchy, but if you look they pretty much show the detail of the design.
