    Hey O's I am wanting to build some reflectors for one of my tanks and I am looking for ideas on whats the best material to use. I have used polished alum before on one of the other tanks but would like to use something else as I dont think I can get the alu shape again.

    Thanks

    I did some calculations making 1m reflectors with alunod and having it laser cut and bent giving you an angular reflector 50mm wide, would cost about R90 per reflector, cutting and bending being the biggest cost.
