97 laredo Header panels options

I suppose I was too heavy handed when replacing my headlights today. I drove the lower mounting stud though the header panel on the drivers side. I gave it a sharp smack to seat the new headlight and drove the stud and surrounding plastic back through the panel. I even opened up the holes that snap onto the studs and greased the studs to make it easier to install the new headlights.

I was just wondering if there is one maker of replacement header panels that are better than others. I was at the local junk yard today and the JGC's there were trashed in the front end so no parts there. I really don't want to do this job twice by buying some cheap junk. Thanks for the help folks..

No problem.

My buddy and I went through the same hassle of trying to find a good used header panel at the local yards here. After about a month and looking at countless ZJs we finally found one, since it was half off day it only cost him $10. If we hadn't found that one he was planning ordering the one I linked you to.
