Like Cletis mentions,any decent glass shop,auto or domestic should be able to cut new ones for you.
Even better if you have the originals for templates.

Failing that,many of the traders listed in the links section can supply pre-cut kits and even templates if required.

My local glass shop was twice the price of Classic Parts.

Use Stovebolt in the promo code and get discount. Look for specials on free shipping and other discounts etc etc

Same around here with local glass companies. Too high and I worry about it being the same thickness and shape.

I hear you on the cost,I tend to forget I buy my glass at net trade prices.(A perk of being in the 'biz)
Re: The correct shape,I actually templated my windshields from a set a friend bought from a large vendor and the fit was awful,so no guarantees there either i'm afraid.
(I can't remember who it was they came from though.)

For mine I made a cardboard template for the windshield and had a local glass shop cut it from the required AS-1 glass.
