CF Card cover door e-300

The CF cover door on my e-300 has stopped latching. I think the little tabs have broken off. Also the soft rubber(?) door over the USB and video connectors has disintegrated.

Does any one know a good source of spare parts for e-300? I'd be very grateful for any help. Thanks.

Contact Luton Cameras repair service - they might be able to order one, though of course the OP is in Australia - they might post it?
