Broke plexiglass on fuel/temp gauge

I was replacing my stock radio on an 08 and in the process I broke a piece of the plexiglass in front of my fuel/temp gauge. Anyone know if they sell just the glass or do I need to buy a whole new gauge set. If so has anyone seen one for sale lately?

Have you tried toyota for that part? Otherwise a wrecking yard might have it but might not want to part it from the cluster.

ehhh, I don't want to pay outrageous prices to go through Toyota. I may check a salvage yard or buy the entire cluster on her and send it to one of the guys who switch the LED's before I install it. I am also thinking of buying 1/16" glass and templating the original and cutting it out with a scroll saw. Looking to see if anyone has done anything similar, I dont even know if that glass is meant to come off. Any thoughts?
