Check your local phone listings for a place that works with plastics. You might be able to find somewhere that makes guards for machinery, or something similar.

Tell them what a fantastic project you are working on and they might just GIVE you a big pile of scrap pieces.

Plexiglass is pretty easy to work with. It's non-conductive and will show off your electronics. It is brittle, so be careful drilling holes near edges.
