Wanted..15mm thick White plastic sheet

I have to build an adaptor to fit a new larger GPS/Fishfinder. Because I'm slightly lacking in console space I'm after a piece of white UV stable plastic so that I can make an adaptor up. What I'm after is a piece 250X300 and 15mm thick or thicker.

So if you have any Ideas on where to source a piece without breaking the bank, please let me know.

Is this going to end up being a bezel to fit around the perimeter of the unit?

If so, it would be substantially cheaper to manufacture it out of smaller strips, gluing and screwing it together, and milling it (a router works well) as necessary. Lots cheaper than illing it from billet.

There are several epoxies that work on PE plastics now:

G/flex
Scotchweld 3010
Devcon Plastic Weld

to name a few.

If it's not a bezel, disregard this message.
