Default acrylic panels?

Well I'm getting started on my next mod...
I was hoping to: Water cool, paint , add a window to, add cold cathode lights to and add some clear UV paint to the panel on my antec p182.


The only problem I can't find a supplier for acrylic panels and I don't want to get a kit. Do you know of an online acrylic panel supplier that ships to canada or a store in the GTA.

Although this is my first post my knowledge of computers and building is fairly vast as I come from the computer forum where I have 731 post

Welcome to Hardwarecanucks.com moditir!

I found those at Performance Pcs (Which, IMO, is one of the best Online store for everything you mentioned above!) It's located in the USA thought. If you order from them (And if you live in Canada), to avoid extra fees, always chose USPS as your shipping service!

Window Kits /Molding/Edging : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

Have a look at it. Put some stuff in your cart and use either the shipping calculator or go to the checkout page without going any further. It's not that expensive. But yeah, i bet that if you only order acrylic panels, shipping would be stupid only for that. Normally, when i order from US retailers, my orders a quite big. Therefor shipping isn't that stupid If you know what i mean.

If you just want sheets of acrylic you should be able to find them at your local hardware store.

Kent hardware here in HFX carries sheets of varying thickness and quality.

1/8 is awfully flimsy.... I'm sure we had at least a high as 1/4 when I checked here last fall.
