Default Coroplast locator


I'm sure the topic is redundant, but where can I buy coroplast in Bay Area?
I tried the coroplast locator link at the but it doesn't
work. Does Home Depot carry it?

Is there a store where I can buy all the main materials for a SPAD: pipe, coroplast,

Default RE: Coroplast locator


I did a search on google for coroplast sheeting and found my sort of local (60 miles one way) supplier of coroplast.

[link=]CLICK HERE[/link] for the google search results I came up with....there are a couple in CA that you might want to give a call.

For the gutter pipe (2 1/2" square american pipe) can be found or ordered from most do-it-all hardware stores or if you want to use the smaller canadian pipe (stuff I used for the dominator) you can find that at menards or similar home improvement type stores. Other spad building materials such as the 1x1/8" thick aluminum flat stock for landing gear can be found at home depot for less than 7.50 for 8 foot and the 1" square fuse material (spa3dt fuse material) can also be found at home depot for less than 10 bux a 8 foot section (lowes wants 28+ bux for the same 1" square tubing).

As far as the right glue for coro you can get the handibond CA that is designed especially for glueing up coro or you can use pro-bond poly glue (another home depot item) or even goop. I've used the poly glue with great results on my dominator couldn't pull that apart if you wanted to. Another words building a spad is all about using what you have available for building materials and resources to get other supplies.

Find the materials and start building today so you can join in on the spad addiction !!
