 I need dust/grease caps for my hubs

I have a utility trailer that was home built. I bought it from a former co-worker, and have put a little work into making it road worthy again. Recently, I redid the bearings on both hubs, as I had lost one of the outer dust caps a while ago.

I need replacement dust/grease caps. I've tried as best I can searching through Google, and I've tried to look at Jegs, Summit, and Year One, and local shops like Tractor Supply and the local RV center.

From what I know, they are old Ford 5 bolt drum brake hubs. The dust caps diameter that I need is 1.937" (1 15/16"). Everyone in the free world sells a 1.98" cap, which obviously doesn't work. (As a former mechanic and fitter, I can't squeeze the extra .050 in.)

Someone point me towards a pair of caps that will fit, please!?
