I think that VPI still sells a 16 to 16.5 upgrade kit? That's what I did with my original HW16. It works way better than the standard 16. Check with VPI...

Many who owned the 16 converted them to the 16.5.
VPI does I believe still supply this upgrade, with all the required parts. The only other less expensive options I can think of, if it is just the Lexan cover broken, is to find a local plastics shop that can make an identical copy for you. I assume all they are, is 1/4" thick Lexan sheet.
If it's hinges as well, or some other mechanical item, VPI may still have these parts, which shouldn'e be too sophisticated, and may be garden variety parts available from a Home Depot? I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help, as I'm not that familiar with the older VPI 16 RCM. Mark
