Custom tank


I have a stand that I built to hold my 65g 36x18x24 tank. The tank is old and the glass has been cloudy since I got it. I have tried to clean it and nothing seems to remove the cloudy look. Like it has been through the dishwasher many times. Anyway, I was thinking of building my new tank to fit the stand. It is an odd size of 41x20x24 is what I came up with. I can not seem to find any place to get my glass from. Every place I find cost more to ship than to have cut to size.

My question is: I live in the Dayton area, where is a good place to get glass from?
Or
Should I try and find busted tanks and piece together enough to make a good tank?

Thoughts
Thanks in advance.

I believe I've used Gates and A-Service glass for a few custom pieces for work in the past. It was like 5+ years ago. I would just call around the companies in the yellow pages or what you find online and ask them how much pieces cost. Might also try the GCAS forums or the saltgeeks forums to hit the more local crowd.
