Hey does any one know where I can get some modding supplies ( etching kits, UV reactive stuff ect) its tricky to get stuff to mail here cause of the customs and taxes. I have a couple sites but i need to save some money. hehe not a good thing to be so cheap. Its not that important i can always alter stuff to fit like home made water coolingect

Back 5 months ago when I was still living in Canada (Kelowna) London Drugs that had a computer dept were carrying some modding supplies, cold cathodes, that sort of stuff, not sure if they had anything else.

Bytewise is pretty good..they've been pretty good about keeping things instock and the flexable payment/shipping prices/packing are excellent...I used to use dealsdirect but they were always having stock problems. Atic.ca in BC has great prices but becareful if you use them, make sure they have what you want before paying.

I'm in ontario too :)


anyone know what happened to Firestorm in alberta?
