gopro hero 3 housing cracked

my gopro hero 3 housing got a couple of hairline cracks on the black plastic that's in front of the lens with the 8 hex screws around it.
Max depth I took it was 40 feet, so I think it just failed on its own over time, after 5 years, but not many dives.
I doubt that I can just replace the black plastic frame. Material fatigue implies it's time to replace the whole housing.
I don't see it in GoPro's website. So the options are: used from ebay, or 3rd party.

Have had very good results with these. No issues. Takes 3 weeks or so to get.
