    Now I being a newbie to this forum, modding, squishy drink bottles, modding, and where to buy things, I ask this and then stop talking by starting a sentence with now and following it with redundancy.

    Alright, where can I (the king of magic), find rounded peices of white clouded plexiglass? Or simply plastic.

    FOR I HAVE NIFTY NIFTY IDEA!, I am thinking of putting a blue and a purple liquid neon behind a half-circle of rounded white clouded plexiglass thin enough for it to be translucent so then it can warble around and get an effect anyone who watchs certain sci-fi will recognize. Warrb warrb.. warrb.

    Now where could one find such? Would I need to get normal square peice of plastic and bend it? What do you recommend? Where is the best place to find neon kits? What's everyones favorite website? What is everyones favorite color?

    Get clear plastic that meets yer needs, then use the spray on stuff that makes it cloudy. The sell it in hardware and craft stores so people can fuzz up their bathroom windows etc. and still get light.

    Sounds like there would be several opportunities to reuse packaging from other products for what you have in mind. I have a couple 1-1/2" clear mailing tubes on my desk at work ferinstance.

    And my favorite web site is bit-tech, naturally.
