Simple cut and install a new piece of acrylic? It works. Go for it. I Would recommend finding a replacement for the screws that are currently attaching the window as matching them will be near impossible with off the shelf hardware. Check out your local ACE, Home Depot or Lowe's, or drop by a Fastenal if you've got one locally. Check out black button head or hex socket head screws. I think the socket heads would look great on that industrial looking case. Maybe drop a black or colored washer under the screws too.

Do you need the side fan? or are your temps good? Also, do you have a dremel handy? I agree with getting button head screws or the like to fasten the window on, they look prime thumb.gif
