hmm sounds like a good option, ill go to the local diy place and see what i can get idealy i need to know what im looking for but fingers crossed i should be lucky and see somthing lovely and cheap that will do the job im afraid im one of those terrible noobs that asks far too many questions :icon_roll
can you use standard bent aluminum to make a reflector or is it better to just paint the inside white?
