    My name is Noel and I have been collecting Oakleys for about 15 years. Just scored my first case, hoping to get some info, on how to restore it. Has a couple of kinks but nothing major.

    Welcome to the forum, that is the double wide aluminum tower, or X-metal, what's exactly wrong with it? It should have 4 plastic shelves.

    Don't know the difference between the aluminum and X-metal. Is missing some screws from the corner hinges and only has 3 of the 4 bottom groves, not a lot of scratches on the plexi glass, locks are missing. Also thinking of putting lights on the top. I been wanting one of these for years.

    Nice score man! Hard to tell, does it have shelves? Could always have some made if not. The guys over in the display case section of the forum will have measurements and such. I'm sure somebody can help you out! Welcome to the forum! Now let's work on filling that bad boy up with Oakleys :)

    Yea it has 4 shelves, I just got this last nite, drove 4 hours to get it, but had too. Someone beat me to a single display case, I didn't want this one to get away.

    Yes, absolutely! This is how to do it! You don't wait too long, just go get it before somebody else beats you to it! Very cool display case, well worth the effort!!!

    Welcome. I'm in Houston too. There may be a collector's event in our area in April. Fun way to hang out and share collections and BS. Keep an eye for more details.
