you might want to try a mylar/lexan mirror, easier to cut and trim.
you could also try a commercial kitchen shop.

You may also want to try McMaster-Carr.


They have a distribution center in Robbinsville NJ. They also have a "will call" counter where you can pick it up and save shipping. Not sure if they would have the size you need but may be worth a try.
