Default Briliance!!!!

So i was driving my car in to work pulling bout 100mph and suddenly here a pop and the driver window slips down into the open position. Im thinking great this is new.
Well i got up this morning and took the pannel off and one cable broke at the end where the window sits in the track and both are fraid and giving me trouble. So my question is that i need 2 new cables.
Should I
1. Try to find a bicycle shop to make me some
2. Find a NOS part
3. Canabalize a random miata
So wich of these would be the easiest for me given that my motor is good and i dont have any spare miatas sitting around.

NAWS will fix it...but just try to find a used window regulator out of another car, that will be your easiest fix and cheapest time-money wise.
