    Looks promising that fella. They seem to have a good supply or different colours aswell. I'll drop them an email and see if I get a response

    Do it yourself with a jigsaw and a decent blade, take your time to keep the blade warm

    You can but white clear masking tape.measure to where you want to cut and draw a line with a black marker. the water proof fine tip are the best for this. tape the perspex,draw your line and cut it with a hack saw with a fine blade. you can use a jig saw as some of the lads recommend,but a jig saw will never gove a complete straight line, their will be some slight movements in the saw.
