Interior Plastic Endcap replacement?

Has anyone replaced the plastic endcaps in their airstream? Mine have tears/cracks in them. I believe I can repair them and seal them and paint them. My boyfriends says to replace them. I did a search and could not find where to get them replaced.

A picture of these endcaps would help your search.

I think you will have an extremely difficult time finding a replacement. Most people use overlapping strips of aluminum or wood like the exterior 13 panel vintage exterior endcaps. I repaired my plastic endcap...

Also, the front endcap is plastic, but the back one (at least in mine) is fiberglass. You might also check with an autobody shop, or better yet, a fiberglass boat repair shop.
