Default Ceramic coated fuel rail, ruined o-rings in it, fixable?

Ack, i had my dual inlet 97-98 corvette fuel rail (the one with the return line) ceramic coated. I put fuel pressure to it on the car and instantly blew fuel everywhere out of the regulator on the crossover tube. I popped the snap ring off and pulled the regulator piece and looks like it has two o-rings that used to be there before they were melted.

Is the regulator part replacable or should i just get another rail.

If it trashed the O-rings, it may also have cooked
the diaphragm inside the regulator body, if there's
that kind of soft parts inside the "pod"; I expect
you should just buy a new regulator and try to
find a way to get the new guts into the pretty
reg shell?
