Yes, the DeWalt Tough Chest 38 in. 63 gal. Mobile Tool Box ( https://www.homedepo...63 gallon chest ) would work well; it weighs 34 lbs. empty. You could get your own Pluck Foam ( https://www.ebay.com...k foam&_sacat=0 ) to line it. If you wanted to save some money for the foam on the bottom, go to your local Fabric Store and get some economical 2" foam sheets used for pillows and seat cushions. Home Depot sells that too: https://www.homedepo...0cushion?NCNI-5

Any update? I just got a LX90GPS 10" and was thinking of doing the same thing.

There are several on-line businesses that specialize in 'road crates' - the boxes used by musicians to haul their gear around - some will build to fit, most will sell you all the parts - edge strips, corners, latches, panels, foam, etc, you need to build your own.....
by the way, an electric knife (the meat-cutting kind) is a great tool for cutting foam....
