Default SIG Field Box - NO Power Panel

So I bought a SIG field box and it doesn't come with a power panel and they don't even sell them. So now I have this big hole in my box that I'll need to fill in. Is there anyplace that would sell such a power panel or anyone have some suggestions where I can purchase individual parts to create my own power panel?

I'm a little more than upset that they would sell the box with out a power panel. I would not be so upset if they would have at least let the customer know they are not available. Instead all of their product pages display the power panel so I assumed I would be able to get one. This is like an arrow in the knee and I will now always look at SIG products with suspicion as I feel I've been duped.

I just cut a piece of thin ply and covered it with monocote for mine. I have wired it two ways. First way was to just run two bolts through the ply. One + and one -. Then just used clips on the starter and fuel pump. The second was was to mount two sets of the female banana clip into the ply and put a set of each of the male on the starter and fuel pump.
the second way is safer but both worked perfectly. I never ran the glow plug off of the power panel as I used a battery powered glow driver.
