Some comments on the grilles:
The ones you linked to are for the AR2ax and will NOT fit the AR2a.
You might try emailing that ebay seller (vintage AR) and ask if he will sell you AR2a grille boards (without the cloth). Then you could cover them with the grille cloth of your choice.
Or ask him for complete AR2a grilles. They are consistent with the original appearance, but not all 2a's had the natural linen grilles. Here's a shot of mine, with funky original 60s grille cloth.
If you decide to make your own, you could use thin (1/8") Masonite. I can give you the measurements. On the 2a, the grilles are the same width as the opening in the frame, but they are longer than the length of the opening. You bow them and slip the top and bottom into the slots behind that front frame.
