Tandem pump cover replacement?

I have a perfectly performing tandem pump which has a rusty original cover and as ACP aluminium replacements are no longer available, I wondered if anyone has thought about 3D printing one.
 
ACP used to make a plastic cover, unfortunately I can't seem to reach their server anymore. Don't know if they have gone bump ? If that is the case then there is a gap in the market that needs filling ! Unsure if a 3D printed cover would cope with the heat as it must be close to the temperature that 3D printers work at ? I think what you need is a phenolic plastic but I am sure there are chemists on here that can confirm/deny. Option I suppose is buy a Porsche one and powder coat the cover prior to fitting ?







edit due to poor spelling!
