Red face Door for topper

I bought a used Raider Nomad Topper (older version). Got a sweet deal because it was missing the back glass/door. It serves my purposes, but for aesthetics , I would like to have the door on it.
My options are:
#1 purchase the Raider replacement part from dealer and pay shipping which would cost nearly $300
#2 Fabricate a back door from Acrylic glass and other material. (Lowes has the glass for $60)

Leaning more towards the DIY method. Anyone ever done that? Ideas?
I know I can fabricate something, but I need to think of how to do it with the least expensive materials.

Ive found out the hard way in the past just because you can do it yourself doesn't mean you should in the end it might look worse than without the door.
