I used 1/8" lexan(Polycarbonate sheet) you can drill it, torque it ,usually without destroying it,the only problem with it is that is is a soft material and scrathces a little easier than regular plexiglass,but I got some pcs. for free from a friends glass co. Thank you.

I used a 4 1/2'' hole saw,for the center and a dremel to cut the small threaded posts on the back,also used a makita baby sander to polish the large hole starting with a 120 grit and worked it up to a cork belt with oil ,the spikes I put in are larger than I wanted but thats what a local co. had in stock,I may change the inside color a little,this took me about 2 hrs. just to cut and cost me about $25.00.Hope this helps.

cover looks cool, acrylic and polycarbonate will both scratch easy, acrylic will break even easier, you could check into this company we use for a scratch resistant coating to see if they would coat your piece and what the cost would be....link...good luck, BTW polycarbonate molds fairly easily with a heat gun, just don't get it too hot or bubbles will come up in it

Lexan tends to distort/warp with heat. I wonder how it will hold up down there. 3M makes a product called Acrylite (a scratch resistant acrylic) that is popular for fish tanks.
