    You can get the Alanod sheeting from Argent Steel in westmead - 031 7008594

    Have a look at this thread for some ideas : Alanod in Johannesburg - Marine Aquariums of South Africa

    You can use the black strip connectors for endcaps cos the waterproof ones are quite expensive - but if you want it then marco - waterboy has it.

    The alanod sheeting is about R250 - and it is a pretty big sheet - it might be worthwile for 2 guys to split it.

    a bigger 1600 x 1000 sheet is also available if you want to make 5ft reflectors.
