      From a US retailer, not PDI directly. If you could, I'm sure you could get the cost down further again.

      Ok so I'm just going to add right here for everyone, to buy the glass in USD its 1 Sheet = $295 each
      4+ Sheets = $265 each (do you own conversion on the day given exchange rates are fluctuating a bit). Contact this guy and he'll quote you precise shipping, not my attempt at a calc based on factors that may or may not affect others: Joey@Pinballdecals.com

      * A delusion of grandeur is the fixed, false belief that one possesses superior qualities such as genius, fame, omnipotence, or wealth.
      It is most often a symptom of schizophrenia, but can also be a symptom found in psychotic or bipolar disorders, as well as dementia (such as Alzheimer's).
      Oh mate you really are agitator with your memes etc eh. Delusions of grandeur, yeah right. You'd probably swallow that comment if you actually knew me. Maybe you'd like to have a convo via PM and I can set you straight with some facts.

      He is the US supplier, not the manufacturer. He gets it from the factory in Germany, just as Jordan does with his importation of it.

      Shit, what a read. I feel lightheaded and need a Panadol after that. Very entertaining though, so thanks guys.

      I'll stick to my $40 per sheet regular toughened glass and ignore the minor reflections.

      It's not all that confusing frankly.

      Now I am confused.
      You stated
      550 dhl shipping.
      390 sheet

      550 divided by 3 is 183
      183 +390
      573.
      Am I missing something? Not being trying to be cheeky. I'm actually trying to work out some numbers to get some to wa.

      No cloak and dagger at all. I was trying to illustrate that there was more than straight out numbers involved given I know for a fact in my case that I would have paid a decent cost for freight from QLD to NSW. Why is that aspect so difficult for everyone to understand? So in my own terms the glass costs me less than the $A476 a sheet and may well be relevant to others across the country who were trying to work out if it's comparatively worth it to them to do.

      Ok I was quoting off the 3 as the DHL was for 4 actually with the 4th for a mate who wanted one. DHL was $A540 so it calcs. I was trying to calc it as my own purchase not with my mates, but that's obviously made it less clear in the end as it was too hard to break down what the impact of minus 1 sheet is to the DHL cost. My apols on that one. Final figure posted (and edited on original post) is the corrected cost per sheet.
