Default Metal PCI covers?

Hi guys, my case didn't come with replaceable metal PCI covers (you have to pop them out) I was wondering if anyone knows where to get these cheap? Not looking to pay much, maybe $1-$2, just don't want dust to get sucked in through those holes

Only replacement ones I know of are Silverstones AeroSlots. And those are vented and cost $10.

If you dont really care how it looks you could always make something out of card board or just put pantyhose over the opening to allow air in/out but prevent any dust from getting in.

You can get Aeroslots for $4 or less, I love mine. Pricematch to BestDirect or DirectCanada at NCIX.
