    Acrylic or ABS suppliers? Anyone know any online

    I have been trying to find some nice plastic, and figured I would ask here to see if anyone knew of a good one. I don't have a local one, that I can find, where the sheet is shorter then 8 feet. And can't find one that has scraps, or want to tell me about. I have found a few online, but to be honest I am confused with the amount of different types, and would love to know if someone has bought online.

    I have thought of cutting up the dogs pin and using that plastic from it. If you have recommendations on something you can buy to use the plastic, let me know. Mine has to be about 18" x 18" because my entire dash piece has to be replaced. My balsa wood didn't stand up, no matter how much I backed it up, I ended up cracking it, and couldnt' get it to fit just right anyway. I found some acrylic at Home Depot, but the 1/4" was too freakin thick.
    thanks for any help in advance.

    I actually just got back from a place that had everything. I bought a 4x4 sheet for $15, which was 1/8 inch thick, and they gave me a 2' x 1.5' for free that was 3/16. My dumb a** was calling around for 3/8 instead of 3/16. If anyone needs a little strip, let me know. Just pay the shipping and I will send it to you. I only need it for my dash, which is around 1' x 1', so I will have alot left over. Thanks anyway man.

    I got it at Regal Plastics on 1700 Wirt Rd. Its off of I-10 between 610 and the beltway on the west side. You have to go in. They have trash cans full of it, and also sheets from where they cut off halfs or corners. They have every kind, style, and color you could imagine. Its like a lumber yard with plastic.
    later,
