        Ouch! Avoid Tap Plastics like the plague. They think VERY
highly of their products.

        Interstate Plastics sell 4' by 8' sheets of 0.060 polyethylene
for $23 (if I remember correctly). Call them at (510) 483-4341 (San
Leandro) and ask if they have a SF store.

        good luck, and call plenty of plastic suppliers from the
yellow pages,
