Hi, I'm in the process of building myself a DIY hood for my 90 gallon tank. The hood will measure 18''x48''. I am looking hard to find a polished aluminum reflector with these measurements. The largest ones I found so far are only 12''x48''. Can anybody help me out?

Thanks... mario

Check these out. Marine Depot Reflectors
They aren't 18" but you can get two 9" reflectors.

The other day I saw big sheets of sheet metal for sale at home depot.You would have to cut it and bend it to shape though.I've been thinking about trying it myself.
