    Hi guys, where can I buy eggcrate from? Been to Builders Express and some of the LFS's and no one has - some have never seen it before :p

    Take note I'm in PMB :whistling:

    Guys,

    You can buy eggcrate from most Voltex outlets or otherwise try ARB Electrical.
    It's called eggcrate light diffuser in the lighting industry.

    i worked out the packing volume is 1.5kg volumetric weight, and will get shipping costs for it... for major cities shipping can be free where i have a branch as i can slide them in containers

    Thanks Dallas, let's see if I can get this side first. Wonder why Mek hasn't told me where he got his eggcrate from :(
    O yes, now I remember - his handy man probably went to go buy it so he doesn't know :whistling:
