Unhappy can't find a transm pan gasket, how do I make one?

I own a 97 1.8 LS coupe Mirage 4 speed auto. My transmission pan gasket has 15 holes and it is full squared shape unlike other mirages, so I assume I have some sort of none-mitsubishi transmission in my car. I did by the car used at 165k miles. The gasket is leaking fluid, about 10 drops per week. How do I make my own gasket or should I just drain all the fluid and then use epoxy glue to fix this leak? I really would just like to replace the gasket, but I don't know who made this transmission.

first, your transmission doesnt have a pan. It DOES have a steel cover on the front of it that covers the valve body, if thats what you're referring too...

and there are no gaskets sealing any exterior surface of the transaxle. All surfaces are sealed using a liquid RTV silicon sealant.
