If you are driving, Just go back toward town down Sims Ave until you get to the intersection at the Paya Lebar MRT (Paya Lebar Road) and go right on Paya Lebar Road. Ubi Ave 1 & Ave 2 are off to the right (Looks for the "A to Z Building" on the right side of the road.

Keep going on Paya Lebar Road will bring you eventually to Serangoon Road which you will cross onto Boundary road. When you get to the bottom of the hill you will reach an intersection with a sports complex on your right (Kovan) Keep right and as you go up the hill start looking on your right for Naga Motors, Food shops and Petro Kiosks. It's along there very close to one of the petrol kiosks.

Ok give SMS shop a whirl. Then revert.

I may not be able to get exactly what you need. An idea of the sizes would be good. Lenght of pipe. Diameter of pipe ( minimum you could use). An idea of the window size/location would be good too.

I dont think haridryer will generate enough heat for the experiment. You'd need a heat gun. Like a hair dryer only much hotter. Normally used to strip paint or apply shrink sleeve to electrical cable.
Heat gun would also be useful in "moulding" pet bottle or acetate.

Good luck

Just thought you might like to know we had SUCCESS with our search!

Headed out on Saturday using suggested directions. Came across Ang Mokio Ind Park and got a suitable length of PVC piping for $40. Got another place in the park to grind out the window ($20) - did a great job.
So thanks for all the help and suggestions.
