Anyone think it would work to just cut new ones from cardboard and add a few layers of Fiberglass to reinforce them?

Figured painted fiberglass would hold up better than fabric, is cheaper, and might add some speaker mounting options.

As long as you get the shape right you can make them out of anything you want. I don't think I would use only resin on cardboard. You could use a layer of fleece, that would hold resin very well.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
