Best place I know for thinnish coloured plastic is Fred Aldous of Manchester. I bought a yellow and red A1 sheet for around a fiver each last year and delivery was excellent. Give it a go although you may not get the exact match but I was well pleased and have enough over to replace another backflash should another restoration project come my way.

Thanks for the help GM. I'll take a look as that. It sounds like what I need! How did you successfully cut out the holes for the cups etc?

To cut the holes I've always used a proper surgical scalpel which I find far better than these craft knives. Mine is made by Swann Morton and uses 10A blades. You'll find them via Google and they are very sharp. The good thing about this material is that it's thin enough to shine a torch through which makes cutting the holes easier and a small file smooths the edges for a good job. Main thing is, take your time !
My friend told me to send you this link to Fred Aldous which I used for a yellow sheet but you've probably already found it by now ! Good Luck . !!THUMBSX2!!
