Where do you buy your parts?

I've been looking everywhere for some mesh, I want to make fan-guards and I intend to snip out the noisy sheet metal honeycomb that is in my case... The only issue is I cannot find any local suppliers for any fine mesh.

I had something in mind along the lines of .005 wire thickness, 24x24 to 60x60, and 55-65% open air space. This should make a lot less noise and improve my airflow

I suppose while I'm asking, what makes for good duct/shroud material? I suppose plastic flex-duct would have static discharge issues to worry about?

Check your local Auto Zone. If they don't have it on hand, ask one of the clerks to check the system and see if they could order it.

As for shrouds, one of MNPC tech's older vids, he used a 120mm fan duct from MNPC tech. If you wanted to go a cheaper route, I'd say visit your local car audio shop and take the fan in that you want to use and see if they can match the size to a plastic subwoofer port.. Also, PVC pipe would probably work as well.
