Your best bet is buying lexan/polycarbonate from local plastics shop.
Cut it out and drill to fit.
Just bought some for $5 per ft2 1/16" (I think Spruce is cheaper   
be sure to overdrill (my old panels had just about *every* hole cracked   
re the latch, if you're talking about those little L-shaped springs, you   
can order from Aviat.
I threw those away and put an over-center type draw latch up over my   
head.  Much better.
