Replacing sliding glass window

Hey All, So I broke the front sliding glass on the soft top window. I was curious as to If I should just have glass cut locally or search it out from a rover shop. The concern over just having one cut is the handle seems to be through the window- as in a non generic peice of glass with a handle glued on.
What have you guys done- I can't be the first to break a peice of glass.

Its cheap to get the genuine part - maybe 40 dollars. The handle is also inexpensive. Its not hard to replace the glass, but you have to drill and replace the rivets holding the interior channel. Its also a good chance to replace the felt that keeps the glass from rattling. I think I have pix of the process.
