I think the vacuum form process will not hold accuracy well enough.   I'm researching a bit here at work too.   I have lots of tie ins to the automotive & manufacturing industry.

How much accuracy is needed for the cover?

Rough guess? About 0.20" or so. The mounting screws to hold the board to the enclosure aren't very large.

That may be a problem for vacuum forming.

Injection moulded plastic is probably the best but the reason you have to buy min 10000 pieces is they have to make a die and if you never buy more they have to cover the cost

I used to have contacts in that biz but not anymore. I had a great little shop in middle of nowhere China that would do the mould and do a run of 250 just to get their name out there.  They had good quality stuff and met tight tolerances too. Ended up supplying me a lot of parts. They had 0 overhead so that's why they could do it.

What I you moulded without mount holes and let folks drill and tap them after purchase?

I have used the services of http://www.mfg.com/, and had real good results.
I had some very low volume plastic and machined parts made at reasonable prices.
It is a reversed bidding process and the pricing can be all over the map, but it may be worth a shot.
