I'm not sure how much this will help. Was a guy at Unit 15, 25-31 Airds Rd Minto, makes plastic lenses. (Still there).

When he saw  my C4 (was kept in warehse) he asked to measure and photograph the rear, so he could make lenses.

Sorry no number, cant remember his name or company.

Next unit to Tyre Pro Minto 9603 6771 mohamad may have his number.

ordered a couple of sets from that guy about 15 months ago,no contact since and they never turned up :( ...if you wish to have amber indicators fit yellow LED,s in the red housing (so it still looks correct) and they will flash orange ,have done several like that now and the engineer likes them !

I got a pair of lights from vanline, red in colour, brake/park in red, but the centre when reverse polarised gave a yellow/amber flash. Read that again, the whole lens IS RED, but the centre changes to yellow. Drawback - they are smaller dia than the  C4's, never tried them against the 78, I'll see if I can find them in the garage. Vanline are on ...... not Airds rd, but off it on ..........


Oh nearly forgot, naturally since they change colour, they are LED.

It works and it looks good
I did come across these but at 130 mm they are a tad small for a C4

Was down Minto today, the company is David Azzapardi Manufacturing. He does not do retail, most orders go to US. Or some go to a retail outlet, Corvette Clinic I think he said, he has gear to make C4 style round and squarish later style amber & red. Obviously he's reluctant to set up a single lens order, but said if the club made a large group order he could accomodate that. Lead time now is ~6 weeks or so.

Id like to get back to all red on the rear, and some Vanline Halo style lights look red and has red park/stop/and turns amber/orange for blinker.
These look amazing.

I now have his b/card. He makes many other older style tailights.

Interested to see where this goes...
I thought about seeing him a while ago in making a C4 taillight similar to C6 euro style (round, red and amber on the bottom) with using the euro wiring harness you can buy from ecklers and such to do the job, but it was only a one off. But as he only does mass production that stopped that idea, Unless I fund the lot and sell them off?

There could be another complication there, as he did say yellow or red, but he did not mention two in one ie half red plastic and half yellow.
I would suspect it is done, but whether he can is another question.
 
The rear base is black like OEM, but is sealed on to the front later in the process.
