just buy 1 from your local self serve wrecker (about $15) and have it welded and painted then fit it to yours. local panel beater /painter wouldnt charge more than $100 i dont think (thats what id charge). u cant put bog in without sanding an area around it,tapping the hole in a bit,fill with bog ,sand then respray if u want to do it yourself. repair wont last forever though.

the badges dont have holes...... no on the wagons anyway. All I did was boiled the jug tipped the water over the badge and slowly lift it off thats it. I needed a buff afterwards but yeah that easy

depending if its a wagon or sedan or fairlane, wagons are the only ones without holes behind the badges. the badges on sedans have 2 locating lugs so the badges wont go on crooked
