Yep! I needed a piece 6 month's ago, just went to the local glass place, they cut it for the size I needed as well. It was about 1m X 1m and it was $14

Mitre10 Mega have sheets of perspex .

Mitre10 was way expensive when I asked. I get mine at modern plastics in Auckland, but I am sure there are signage places that do sheet materials in Dunedin as well.

I just put a window in one of mine Got an offcut from glass place and cut it on a circular saw (Wood saw). I cut the hole out with a jig saw with a fine tooth blade. Put masking tape over the paintwork to protect it. Then filed the rough edge.

Umm. WTF does anyone want a window in a computer?

To see the pretty flashing light's? Personally, I think it's a soft thing to do, but some people like it.

12. Of course. Makes sense now Replaced the DVD writer & haven't got around to putting the side back on. All I can see are two fans & one green light that doesn't even flash. Boring Inferior Asus MB! Still if I had a perspex window I could get all sparky effects from the static electricity. Perspex is good for that.

Perspex was a mission to find a few years ago in wellington, I ended up paying $20 for an offcut somewhere in petone. $14 was a sweet deal, no glass places had it when we were looking

Miller's Studio Anzac Ave.

.. agreed. Bit like putting blow-off valve on a Honda civic. re all word. There are many clear (and not so clear) plastics available. Perspex is quite rare. More common is Polycarbonate.
