A bit more expensive and all different colours but you get 6 and they're bigger.

If you get white HDPE you can paint it any colour you want.

Nothing wrong with white HDPE, it's what my heavys have mostly been made from.

Jonny's right. the white stuff is just how it looks naturally, and then black (and all other colours) are dyed in the process. There's no real difference in composition. The white stuff certainly isn't "brittle", it held up fine when Tiberious bit Anger (though my motors and mountings didnt)

Damn VAT increase/general price increases!

The slab of 500mm x 500mm x 20mm Nylon that I bought back in the day (Oct 2007) for Drumroll's chassis cost £51 including packing and handling. Now it costs £78.85 without packing and handling!! :o
