Does anyone make a core support for my 78?

Found everything but a core support, mine is pretty rotted. Does anyone make a single headlight core support or do I have to patch mine up?

I found that one also but it appears out of stock? If in your wandering you run across one that doesn't look like barnacles are growing on it I would definetly be interested.

I agree with the above 2 people, I also should have 2 decent ones around. For sure 1 but I am unsure where the 2nd one is.
I think you can find a good OEM one for not a lot of money. Seems the 78/79 core supports held up pretty decently over the years. Even my not so nice mud truck has a good core support and it had huge holes in the floor.

I need the two headlight core where the ends drop down, the quad one seems more available than the two headlight one? Worse case I could fix mine but it would be a real PITA.
