    Hi folks!
    As a newbie, I can't tell you how much I appreciate this resource and the really great advice you folks give.

    I have a few sintra questions for you that I haven't found the answers to in other threads (even though I'm sure they're here somewhere):

    If you're able to find it at Lowe's or Home Depot, what department is it usually in?

    After you've cut it, warmed it and shaped it, is there anything else that needs to be done to it before priming and painting? I've read somewhere that some folks then fiberglas it. Is that necessary?

    Does a regular utility knife really cut through the 3mm thick boards? Anyone use a RotoZip to cut with?

    What silver spray paint works best to replicate Jango's metal armor.

    Thanks for your time. I can't wait to start crackin'!

    You won't find Sintra at Lowe's or Home Depot. You need to go to a plastic distributor or someone who makes signs and see if they have some leftovers or scrap they will sell you.
