Default plexiglass in Canada

Greetings all. I don't like the green window on my Coolermaster NV-690. I was wondering where I can get my hands on a 12"X24"X1/8" sheet of clear plexiglass here in Canada. I need this for a complete teardown-rebuild. If I wasn't in such a hurry, I'd order from the states. I googled, but all I can find is lucite. As soon as I can find a supplier, I'm placing an order. I would also consider purchasing from a HWC member if you happen to have a sheet laying around.

Thanks.

Parker Plastics - Acrylics and Plastics Fabrication and Mmnufacturing

My brother works here, I could ask him later if they actually ship out just plain sheets. You may have to actually head to the facility though. They use numerous kinds of plastics and materials to design things. HTH.

EDIT: I have emailed him personally so hopefully he will get back to me soon.

mo'power, you're friggin' HUGE LUCK. I just got off the phone with Rick and he's going to give me the sheet for FREE. You heard me right, FREE. You'll just have to pay for shipping. My brother can pick it up Monday and I can ship it on Thursday when I get back. Let me get your requests straight:

12"X24"X1/8" sheet of clear plexiglass (aka Acrylic?)

Note: He has a huge selection of colours as well, should you decide to choose something other than clear.

If you want to continue with this, PM me so that I can get your address and whatnot, or you can come by and pick it up next week at the cost of gas lol.

BTW, as much as I don't want to run Rick's business over, perhaps I can get a discount on some of this. Let me know if you guys ever need some and I'll see what I can do.

Well, I wouldn't expect a discount, but once I start case-modding, I'll let you know for sure and at least throw some business his way. It'll mainly be for custom sized side panel windows, if he can do custom measurements that is, if not, I have the tools I can cut with in the garage. And I will most likely be ordering some tubing for one casemod I'm already planning out right now (lol...)

Way late on this but thought I'd throw this up since you're in T.O.

Welcome To MyPlasticStore.com Oops can't find the page...

I've dealt with them when they were Wharehoused Plastics but not yet under the new name. They did small over the counter sales. Heh just noticed they have Tygon...

It's never too late for a good link. I imagine I'll be getting a new case in the new year. The cm690 is ok but with a freezone elite and probably an sli or tri sli coming up, it's nice to have some extra room.
