    Thanks here's what i like about each place:

    @ Lai XIn Feng, you can find most types of commonly used wire mesh - certainly more than enough for your case modding needs, such as steel, galvanized, aluminum, welded, woven mesh. mininum purchase is a foot but you may ask them for loose pieces if they're lying around.

    @ Sin Bun Trading, they have a very good selection of RJ London spray paint (chrome, gold, flourescent). what's most attarctive is they have the hard-to-find wet and dry sandpapers of 1500, 2000 grit. You can also find Bondo and spray on primer and aluminum polish there.

    @ Poey Huat Hardare, you gotta know what you're looking for as they're usually quite busy and they have a HUGE STOCK OF NUTS, BOLTS AND SCREWS for industrial purposes. they're socket screw collection is unparalleled and reasonably priced too. price estimate 1.5cm M4 socket screw is about 35 cents/pc

    @ Yeo Soon Hin signcraft, Li Jun, the proprietress, can be quite helpful. but mind you, they're not technical or design-oriented. so if you go and ask them to make you a Plexi case, you better have detailed drawings. They're selection of Acrylic is good, with many colours and thickness. Price estimate - 6 ft x 8ft x 2 mm is $52.

    @ United Hardware, its a mom & pop store and have no advance cutting machines so don't go expecting too much on precision. But their price is reasonable, i'll provide another contact in Tuas next week if you need precision cut aluminum pieces for case building.

    All these shops are near SLS, kelantan lane area.

    @ Thung On Industries - with CNC and milling machines, so they certainly can do better if its precision and refinement you want. Interestingly, they list computer cases as one of the products they do.
