Headlight housing tabs fix..?

Need to get headlight housings but can't spend the crazy amount of money people sell em for..

Should I just buy with broken tabs and Jb weld something in place of tabs? Maybe washers or nuts?

I've seen someone on here use some kind of epoxy to put washers in before

just look up different 2-part epoxies on Amazon. There is some good stuff out there. I'm sure after the epoxy cures, the joint will be stronger than the plastic itself so the washers might not even be necessary.

You could buy 2 with broken tabs and a 2 with rashed lenses, take them apart with a heat gun, put the good parts together. Voila!

Busted OEM headlights are pretty cheap on eBay.

I would suggest you buy new or used headlights. Save yourself the time in grief in trying to repair the broken headlights
