Replacement for Lo-TRS?

Just stripped a saddle on my RG470. Yup, the infamous Lo-TRS tremolo.
It is my beater guitar, but I have had no problems at all with it.

Discovered I cannot easily find a replacement saddle, so I may retrofit another tremolo...BUT, I do not want to spend much nor do I care to make major mods to the guitar.

So...two questions:

1. Know where I can find one Lo-TRS saddle?
2. What drop-in would be an appropriate replacement?

I am damn tempted to buy a bucket of bondo and turn it into a hardtail.

EDIT: I just found some archives on the subject--sorry for the repeated question. Still, any advice is appreciated.

Many thanks,

Any Floyd Rose or licenced trem will fit, just depends on how much you want to spend on one.
