Kitchen Lignt fixture quandry

I have an old eighties fluorescent light fixture in the kitchen ceiling, and one of the drop panels is broken, so I need to replace all four because they are yellowed. Most places don't even carry the panels, and the ones that do, reviews say they crack and break, and the decorative ones online are too expensive and the wrong size. I would like to make them myself, out of a less brittle plastic, that will take the heat of the bulbs, and let light through. Each panel is 20" x 28.5". Any ideas on what kind of plastic, and where to buy the plastic itself, and/or decorating them, as well.
