Headlight switch nut 3rd gen

Ok guys, Ive broken 2 Headlight switch nuts, those damn plastic ones! Does anyone make an aftermearket metal one, or will an earlier model one fit? Any help is appreciated so I can get this dash back together.

Thanks!

When changing the headlight switch, there is a black plastic nut that holds the switch up against the dash. The headlight switch rod goes through it

For a Camaro you can take one from any '82-'92.. (but I'm not sure about berlinettas...)
Just look in a JY.
