Wanted - matt plastic 2-4mm - e.g. rear covers from projection TVs SONY, Samsung. Those are perfect.


Got recently some gloss plastic - do not like it. Suggestions? Ideas?


Perhaps you saw old projection TV is in the dumpster in Auckland somewhere.

You can get matt black acrylic from plastic places like Cabrian or Modern Plastics.

What are you trying to achieve? Are you trying to make a box to go over your projector? Do you have a picture?

Cambrian - from website looks like only gloss transparent (not good) but Modern Plastics - thanks for the tip, will pay them visit.


Just rectangular face plates with a lot of holes. I am then painting them myself...
