    I checked the service manual for the 68 reissues and it's listed as "complete grill assembly" so even the modern ones don't have it listed as a specific part.

    Only thing I could find was this:

    It might be easier to find a full baffle and trim your parts to fit, since that would be larger than the DR baffle. There's a Vibrolux on Reverb right now from a reissue:

    I've always made it out of aluminum sheeting. Look for a local metalworking shop - they can probably do it for you - but you'll need to give them detail drawings for fabrication, and you'll ned the right tools for installation.

    There are no replacement parts makers or drawings available that I'm aware of.

    I think that Mojotone may carry a drip edge grill replacement.
