      Cocktail control panel advice

      I am doing a restore on a cocktail arcade and these control panel plastics parts (not sure what they are called) need to be repaired or replaced?

      Not sure what options are available, so any advice would be good

      That type of plastic control panel is very thin and week
      Second hand or easily vacuum formed (with thicker material)

      I think they might be a bit hard to get second hand so I am interested in the vacuum formed.
      I have never looked into this area before, are there companies that do this on a small scale like this or is this a DIY thing?

      Should be a few local places that do vacuum forming
      Cheaper if you make your own mold and if you tell them that you will trim the parts
      Probably use 2-3mm haircell ABS with the texture facing outwards
