Re: White acrylic?
- I found them in Lowes. I believe the brand was "wiremold." The ones I got have two screw holes, have a matte finish, are round, and are beige -- almost a perfect match for the fiberglass. They are designed for covering unused ceiling boxes. I think they are orders of magnitude nicer than the crap that Sabre hacked out of Lexan!

- The hole covers are 1/8 or 3/16 white acrylic. Most sign shops have plenty of small cut offs laying around.
You can buy a pieces as small as 12 x 12" from
http://www.usplastic.com/ for about $6.00
Cut to size with a sabre saw (preferred method)or table saw and bevel the edges with a belt sander.
Id there is curve in your head liner take a heat gun and warm the plastic and you can form it to shape needed.
