    egg crate for cheap ? where ??

    Hey everyone,

    i'm looking for a few more sheets of egg crate ( the grills used for fluorescent fixtures.. usually comes in white, chrome and black colors.

    in the past, i remember someone mentioning a place to get egg crate for cheap.
    at rona & reno & homedepot ( all in Gatineau ) its ~10$ for the white and I believe 19$ for the black.

    but i remember someone saying 4-5$ somewhere in ottawa.

    anybody remember where that is.. or would know where to get that stuff for cheap..

    Cheers!

    no.. I actualy mean 8x4'

    I bought one piece for my 90gal for just under 10$ and it lasted me quite some time. a lot of experimental egg crate shelves and tube holders.

    I believe it was 8.64+tax
