    No problem, good luck! If you hit any snags be sure to throw something up on the gen discussion board, it gets the most traffic!

    Someone said there is a Car place that will do acrylic for like $100 or $150. I can't remember the name but Black and White Auto comes to mind.

    They did a tank for me a few years back, but the owner sold it to a fracnchise and they will no longer work on tanks.

    If you go the Novus route I found it locally at the container store of all places. Thier website checks in store stock levels, save a trip

    I used the large bottles of mequiars polishing compound in different stages for deep/medium/light scratches and then novus 1 which isnt a polishing compound but a cleaning/antistatic compound. It was MUCH cheaper going that route when buying stuff locally. I never compared the prices when going online. The mequiars stuff is clay based so its like the novus 3 and 2 which is clay/ceramic based also.
