* 6ft U-channel

$3.99
Item total:$30.93
Shipping and handling Shipping and handling (to 92704) loading...$10.99
Estimate shipping and taxSelect ship-to country (optional)

Total:$41.92 USD

just want to know if there are any other modding stores to buy from or anything like that before i pay that much for the stuff.

For my mod im going to take off the side 200mm and the mesh and cut and place the acrylic sheet on there with the u channel and hold it there with the 4010 tape.

sound good? first mod cant wait to do this but dont want to mess up.

if i were you id, buy as much as a i could locally. The tape (if you even need it, i usually just use hot glue) you can get at home depot. Pickup your phonebook and look up the closest glass place. These places can cut you an acrylic sheet for $10-15. The Uchannel im not sure but definatly a hardware store should have somewhere. at the end of the day the more you can save in usless shipping fees the better!
