    I have had 1 piece of A4 Perspex laser cut into shape ready for the base.

    What colour perspex is it Matt?

    Is it actually white? or is that the protective cover?

    The white is the protective cover, its transparent but when I add the Carbon Fibre Vinyl it will look really cool :)

    Just waiting for the things to arrive and i'm gonna get drilling again :) With a different drill, the other one was a 15.5mm! It just killed the perspex.
