91-92 chin spoiler: repair or replace?

My chin spoiler, apart from the splits in the corners- broken right through, almost to the top- also is missing the tabs that go through the front fenders that are secured by clips on the inside.
I am pretty confident I can plastic weld and repair the cracks- I'll do a write if I go that route- but the tabs are a tougher nut to crack.
Is anyone familiar with this damage, do you have experience repairing it so the spoiler fits properly against the fenders or- and here is the $64,000 question- is there an aftermarket spoiler that is as good as the original, or should I do whatever is necessary to fix mine, rather that buy a reproduction?

I loaned my '92 to my daughter when her car was in the shop for a couple of days. Now I'm in the same boat as you. If anyone knows of a good aftermarket chin spoiler let me, or the OP, know.

I believe Hawks have the spoilers. I purchased one from them a few years ago.

How would you rate the Hawks spoiler? Does it have all the attachment tabs- what is the fit and finish like?
