WTB: Underwood SX150 Back Panel

Just picked up an Underwood SX150 (1955) that works but is missing the rear body cover.  
Would like to purchase this cover.

Providing your location wouldn't hurt; not everything is available through the Internet.

This one you'll have to keep your eyes peeled for.  Underwood 150 through the very early Touch-Master series were very prone to losing their backsides--especially the very early SX-150s.  I've even had to paint them different colors because I couldn't find one to completely match the particular machine I serviced.  Anyway, you may have to be prepared to buy a junker or two, or if you scout the flea markets (swap meets for some) or secondhand establishments, or antique stores, you might be in luck.  The internet might be a source.  You're buying a pig in a poke when you buy online (I stay away from it altogether).  And do not buy one if you can't see that it has a rear cover panel.  You may be just buying another machine with an exposed rear.  I've been seeing those for the last thirty-five years--about as long as I have been in typewriters.But they're phenomenal machines--if you tune them up, oil them, put in a new ribbon, and let fingers fly!!

Thank you for your help and direction as to where I may locate the back panel.  I will keep looking at the flea markets and the second hand shops.
