Phonebook for plastics would probably be the best first bet. Maybe try calling a fish tank builder (the kind that would make custom tanks) as they HAVE to know the plastic suppliers. I'd start think of people that USE plastics and checking the phonebook. If you go in person, have a look at what they sell, they're normally pretty receptive.
Trophie/display case builders
schools (they get supplies from somewhere)
artist commune type places (they can use all kinds of supplies)

I've done a few odds and ends on the project. I've been trying to modify and increase the reliability of some parts of the code. For instance, things tend to crash if any device (rainbowduino, smart battery, etc) isn't plug in or is unplugged in operation. I'm trying to figure ways to A) prevent crashes when parts are missing, and B) intelligently report these errors so that they can be dealt with by the user.
Once again, I'm realizing that with no true programming background, I'm quite at a disadvantage when it comes to this kind of stuff, because I just don't know where to start.
I have been somewhat successful at tracking down an ancient 'bug' when resets of the main controller can sometimes 'lock up' a single rainbow. I've found a way to tie the reset lines together on the controllers so that I can remotely reset all of them when intelligent, so that the lock up problem isn't as prevalent. Then again, just power cycling does a decent enough job really.

Can anyone give me some advice on the best/easiest way to cut out a Guy-man visor?? What tools work best..I was thinking just a cutting wheel with my dremel but not sure...

Do be aware that the dremel will burn the plastic as it cuts, no way around that. Plan to over-cut (leave excess material around you cut line) and sand down the different to remove the burnt plastic.

Thanks for that info..that's good to know but I'm talking mainly about cutting it out before the vacuum form stage..I just don't want to have the cut all jagged..or does that normally have to be cleaned up before vacuum forming..
