I was transporting my tv and the wind got between the outer grayish screen with ridges and the main screen and ripped it in half. I would like to know if this part is available, cost, location, and if this is a protective screen for the main one behind it

I transport them all the time and the best way to do it is to put something down soft in the bed of a truck then lay it down screen first on its face. If you stand it up in the bed of a truck the wind usually destroys the screen. laying them down face first doesnt harm them as long as you have somehing soft to lay it on so the screen doesnt get scratched.
Depending on how bad, there are many layers of screen, if the outer layer is smooth and does not have ridges you can use a piece of Plexiglas to replace that. although glare may be more prevalent with a Plexiglas replacement. if the outer layer has ridges or more than one layer is broken there is not much you can do yourself. The screen from the manufacturer is cost prohibitive to replace. But if you have a local tv repair shop they may have a junk one, that they can sell you for a reasonable price. If it is just a small corner it might be better not to do anything at all, when you watch a tv it is the middle of the tv you watch and the corners are hardly noticeable under normal tv watching, although it may bother some people that the crack exists it actually may not cause you much discomfort watching the tv.
The outer screen that has the vertical ribs will face the front of the set as you are looking at it.. The other will have a circular pattern as you can see, that will face the rear of the set, so the smooth side will be toward the back of the front screen.

If liquid, what did you spill?
There are two screen on a DLP. One is a Fresnel lens that focuses the light from a point source to parallel rays. It has circular ridges that are like short segments of a normal lens, just weighs a lot less. The circles get tighter together as you go to the edge. Then the outer plane has horizontal ridges that concentrate the light in the viewing area on eye level to increase the brightness. They face each other and should be close but not touching. Anything between them is a problem--liquid or not. You may find on AVS Forum for your model a description of disassembly for the screen--it is likely more tedious than difficult. Have a large work area. Do not scratch either lens and put it back the same way. There will be some trick in taking it apart. If the outer screen has been pushed to hard they may have stuck together, hope not or you may be buying the assembly.
the outer screen on these units easly replaced. RCA #258797 their called supersheilds.. rca charges about 70 dollars for the item...If it is just that i have seen people just use a clear sheet of plexi. removeing the screens requires removein several torx 20 screw around the outer and remove the frame.. then the clear peice of plexi is attache with serval brackets.
