    I saw a Tesla themed home charger setup in the Nick Howe book, and thought it would be good to recreate in oz. Not sure if there is an oz thread on this already, but thought I would share the details.

    The closest colour to the Benjamin Moore Neon Red I found in Oz was Taubmans Renegade (bunnings made me up a litre). The Adobe colour site lists it as a very close match.

    I found a place in Sydney that laser cuts 3mm gloss white Perspex using a logo file I converted to autocad. The place is Online Laser cutting,
    Laser Cutting Services Australia Wide and they were very quick (I assume they post Australia wide). Cost $39 plus postage for a 50cm wide name-logo. Happy to pass on the file or they can probably just rerun my job for you.

    Bit of double sided tape (which pops the logo out a bit) and you have your own home service centre charge wall!

    Very cool. I have my own laser cutter. I would love and appreciate getting a copy of the file. :)

    @Tubbers - Just contacted Laser Cutting Services Australia Wide and they said they need your name to find your original order to reprocess. Can you pm me your name?

    The order number was 6886 (the person was Lyndsay - [email protected]). I will also PM my details. I just had them cut the letter parts from a small sheet to make a sign 50cm wide.

    Just received my cutouts -a very simple process. Just email Linsay at Laser Cutting Services Australia Wide with my invoice number 7113 and ask for a rerun. Express delivery and production cost $45+GST ($10+$35). Will post photo when done.

    Tubbers has graciously forwarded to me his file. Just need to fire up the old dusty laser cutter. :) Now I just need to find the time to do so...

    @Tubbers - just painting now and the thought occurred to me that we also need the Tesla logo for above our lettering - as you are the graphics guru (full suck intended) how about it?
