    View attachment 35118 View attachment 35119 View attachment 35120 Quick update. Found 4 bits of mirror polished today & cut & bent them for the lamp plates. I know you only need 2, possibly 3 but it just cost my time. As its laying down in pic 1 it measures 125mm high by 490mm wide and that might lift & tilt into your 500mm body but its flexible enough to bend it in but it wont push down. The body will be 250mm high so the lamp plates will go half way up into that but the lampholders could be put on with spacers to bring the lamp down a bit so it might give you more light if the bulb is a bit further from the reflective surface. They're 370m wide so all 4 lamp plates would fit inside the 1700mm long body if you got adventurous with your tank depth!!!

    Hi mate, went for a job interview tonight & just in case i get it i'm going to run your fitting this week. Its not a problem if you have a change of plan as I'll use it when my tang gets bigger & I need to make a wimming pool for him. I can't start the new job with the words, "I had some homework planned, can I do it here?"!!! I'll send you some pics when its done anyway, see what you think.

    Not sure what you mean? Are we talking just about the reflector material? Do you want one piece 48" X 18"?
