Where to look for replacement cabriolet top spoiler?

Hi everyone—spiffing up the ol' Smart car (2005 ForTwo Passion Cabriolet), and would like to replace the cabriolet top's rear spoiler, which has several broken fins. My Victoria, Canada connection (closest source for me here in Los Angeles) quoted a price of $572 new, and that doesn't even include shipping!!

I wish I could find a good replacement at a salvage yard or similar, but trying to navigate that area of the web is ridiculously full of bait-and-switch mazes. I don't know how to simply find salvage yards that have my model of car in their inventory.

Suggestions? Thank you!!

Yep, Mike T! And the remaining bits are threatening to crack off at any moment.
