Do you have a photo of the damaged part? It's always possible to use epoxy resin to repair plastic parts....

Photo came out pretty good! It helps us figure out exactly what you're talking about. Custom repair also looks decent. I came across several of those brackets while at the local pick'n pulls. Most of them broken due to people ripping the skins off the door panel without regard for anyone that might need a future part. :mad: (intentional damage always hacks me off...)

Glad you managed a work-a-round that looks good and is functional!
