WTB lower engine cover for '99

Looking for the lower engine cover (plastic) that sits immediately below the lower front half of the engine and connects to the larger and longer under body cover ahead of it. Please send a PM if you have one in good condition and want to sell it. Thanks!

You can order a new one from Porsche or use a parts dismantling yard like dcauto.com

Anyone have any luck repairing them? I have all my covers but thinking about epoxy, or even using a 3d pen to do some repairs to mine.

I've done plastic welding to repair these. A good heat gun or soldering iron can do it with some scrap plastic. I bought a plastic welding kit for those, bumpers, and other projects. The repair is better than most epoxies.

Here's a video of the repair. A bit long and tedious. It's easy to get the idea just skipping ahead through most of the video:
