    If u can or have a friend who can read chinese, there is this site where they sell spares.

    It is China based and it only cost $45 RMB but the shipping will be another thing.
    Good luck!

    I think Rick Oleson has some he cuts to size for other TLRs. And of course you could try an upgrade to one of Bill Maxwell's.
