ANT85MAR has floorpans that I have use of and room to store. Problem is he's in California and I'm in Kansas. Shipping is not cheap for that.  Have any ideas on how to get it this way?

How big would the box be? I've used Greyhound before to ship a large item and it was cheaper than any other method.

I've used FedEx Ground for some big items before, once you get up to a certain size the weight doesn't matter.  For big stuff I usually go to a bike shop and get a bike box and cut it to size.  Good luck!
