DA 7400 front hub seal...HELP!

So, I was repacking the wheels on my daily trainer, a 80's Team FUJI, getting it ready for a summer of riding. Sure enough, when I was disassembling the front hub, and tried to pop out the funky black plastic dustcaps with the fancy turn-to-open grease ports...the inevitable happened and the 20 year old plastic snapped. Not just on the black outer seal, but the white plastic innner one as well. I was able to place them carefully back into their position and re-install, but that side cap is definitely not going to last long. It already squeezes grease out while riding, not a good sign.

I don't suppose any of you have one of these laying about, looking for a home in Luxembourg? I've done some internet data mining, and of course, there's nothing like this out there. Surprisingly, the shops here in Lux are not the old-world been-there-forever places you'd expect, and they don't have great back rooms full of vintage parts. Even the 'bay is not much help, unless I want to buy a whole hub.

Anybody? Lil' help?
