This is a tough one. I talked to Delta about this a little while back and it appears that they can get new ones (assuming you're talking about the top stainless plate on the metal bumper) from England, but they are pricey (like ~$600).

Finding a used one in good shape is pretty much the Holy Grail. I know I'd love to find one. Mine is somewhat crinkled up, and I talked to a shop about having them use an English wheel to smooth it out, but their take was it wasn't going to be much cheaper, and they probably weren't going to be able to get it perfect.

It seems like a while back someone was trying to get a group together to split the tooling costs to have new ones made in quantity, but it didn't go anywhere.
