XT 18000

I have an old Minelab Xt 18000 that I love. I have found a lot of gold with it. The battery cover latch has worn out. I recently bought another XT 18000 sight unseen and it came without a battery cover.
So now I have 2 vintage machines without battery covers. It sucks that you cannot get parts for an old one-thousand-dollar machine. If anyone knows where a person might find parts please let me know thanks..............Bob

Do you by chance know anyone that is a machinist that could possibly fabricate one for you? Best of luck to you.
The XT 18000 has a plastic control box . The battery cover is also plastic. If it were metal I could fabricate a cover but I am at a loss when dealing with plastic. The worn-out cover I have is being held in place with a screw. It works but just isn't right. Thanks for the input.

If anything like the Sovereign battery.
I believe you could make one out of metal.
