Replacement Grill for West's Outdoor Speakers

Anyone know where I can get a replacement grill for the 6.5" West Marine Speakers?
One of mine is cracked, and West doesn't carry them, not even as a special order item.

I did a little googling, but all I'm coming up with is metal grills that will be rusted in a week, cloth ones, or plastic ones that are WAY too big.


Since I don't use the stereo too much to begin with, and it's a big power draw, outdoor speakers are kind of obnoxious, and I'm planning on cutting the lines in the fall, and hopefully staying on the hook as much as possible. Maybe I should just yank both of them out, ebay them, and patch the holes?

Check some car stereo places, or online. Many of them sell generic speaker grill kits.

And up in the NE, Home Depot and Lowes sell "radiator cover" metal. Punched sheet metal (alu, ss, brass) designed to be used in steam radiator covers, which could be cut and made into a speaker grill very easily.
