Would it be possible to repair the damage yourself? What damage are we talking about here?

There are multiple ways to repair pastic parts.

Unless it's a really popular case or one with different front panel options you're not likely to find a replacement part readily available.

As Rabid said, there's ways to repair plastic. If nothing else, some strong glue, a little sanding and spray bomb should mask it fairly well.

Its only a small bit of plastic that has snapped which I can glue. The main problem is the metal flaps on the front one of them has a nasty bend in it

Bondo, screws, glue, there are lots of ways to fix it. The question is, is the time to fix it worth it vs the cost of a new case?
