Default Any way to repair instrument panel bezel?

My 65 pony interior instrument panel bezel is original and the screw slots are plastic. Some of the plastic stops have blown through from being tightened too hard over the years. The problem is that the bezel is still in great condition so it would be a shame to have to replace it.

Is there any way to fix/repair the plastic or am I going to have a get a repro? Also, if I do have to get a repro.. are there better quality ones than others?

not quite sure what you're referring to, but sounds like it's the screw holes on the front of the bezel. Try JBWeld or better yet, Loctite Poxy-pak (81120), fill the area, let dry, then redrill the hole, paint to match.. The loctite is excellent, clear, and less brittle than the JBWeld once dried. JBWeld snaps like glass if it gets too thin.
