    They are ripping you off. 12mm should be +- R1500 per m2. I pay way less for it as a dealer, but transport to you will be a problem.

    IMarine I think you missed the point. Calvin only wants the glass to build his new in wall tank. Thats why he wants it broken down and too make the shipping easier.

    I may be wrong, correct me if I am wrong Calvin.
