OBS seat valance

I have a 97 crew cab 350 (4 door full size). My d/s seat valance cover (the plastic cover that holds the lumbar switch) is cracked beyond repair but Ford has made that part obsolete. I have a hell of a time finding even 1 powerstroke at the local junk yards. No one that I know of makes the part aftermarket. Does anyone know of a restoration business or something that makes plastic molds for fords? Or better yet, does anyone have one that they'd like to sell?

U know u dont only have to look for powerstrokes. Look in std cabs and crew cabs in gassers also. I belive the ext cab ones are different. But that may just be the seat pan im thinking of

The junk yards do not have ANY OBS powerstrokes or crew cabs for that matter. It's as though everyone who owns one is a powerstroke.org member and would never send their baby to the scrap yard. I know some are similar, but the older OBS trucks have different valances, and different cab sizes have different valances. I've been checking at the junk yards for about 2 years now off and on, but they never have any trucks that fit the bill.

That website has a few valances for bench seats, which are different (not to mention different color) than the ones for bucket seats. Most of the valances listed are not available. It sucks because national junk yard search engines do not list these things in their search engines.

I'm trying to retain the stock look to the interior and exterior. I may have to give up on it!

Maybe the reason I thought they were different was because the Ford website has different part numbers for them (obsolete) and because at the junk yards, the pre-powerstroke OBS' have different valance covers. I guess I just have to keep waiting for a bronco or F series mid 90's truck shows up lol what a hassle I thought they would be more prevalent at these yards.

Try calling National Parts Depot. and see if they plan on making them any time soon, these trucks are getting ready to hit the classic car satus, 20yrs (or is it 25) and it is a common part that gets damaged and needs replacement.

I never heard of the National Parts Depot. I looked on their site, and wow I was amazed at all of the stuff they had in stock. Unfortunately, not my part lol. I'll try my luck at the wrecking yards. Thanks guys!
