i actually e-mailed the seller and he can get any size you need. You might want to see if you can get it from somplace a local though.

Check with your local glass shops and plastic shops - the material is pretty common. Most under-hatch mirrors are 3/16" thick. You can even find tinted and colored mirror materials if you're lucky.

Got mine from a local glass/mirror store. 3/16 plastic , only trouble three years later the heat is getting to this too. They are some nasty looking spots on my new ones now.

Thanks,

I had called a local plastics company and the sales rep acted like he didn't know what I was talking about. I'll try again, I need a couple of fairly good size pieces.

I have some that came as celling pannels from a closed down department store, not sure how well they will hold up to heat, and there might be a few minor scapes on them that you may be able to buff out. But anyway if you are interested you can have them just pay the shipping.

I had a local make up 2 new engine mirrors, a new Bomar hatch mirror, a new mirror for the cabin over the v-berth, and I added a mirror over the sink. $120 cut, beveled and drilled for screws.
