Needed: half a 650 canopy

So I trimmed too much off my canopy. I cut off too much of the back then realized what was left was too wide to fit the aft fuselage skin. The front half would work but I don't have a usable back half. Anyone been in my situation but needed only a front half? I was hoping someone would sell their aft portion rather than paying for a whole new plexiglass.
