Tip for Corvette C6-R

I believe these lights are used by the ALMS to indicate the car's position.
The part # is LS 201, four lenses to a pack, so you need 2 packs.

Are they .086 diameter? If so they are in stock at
www.discountmodels.com at $2.00 per pack under part number MVP 201

I bought mine at the local hobby shop and they are in the old packaging.
I am also wondering about using some other M V lenses to replace the headlights.

The lights on the car are slightly raised over the surface, the surface of the black disc that contains the array of three lamps is flush, and each of the three LED's appears gray/silver unless it is lit.
I'm probably going to do the light clusters as small decals w/three clear openings for the lamps, and paint the recesses in the doors either silver (for lamps that are off) or flourescent green (for the lamps that are on). Of course if the model is a static display (car is off), the green would never be seen.
I'm also going to spend the time making vented side glass, a rather significant omission by Revell. Or maybe I'll wait to see if the aftermarket steps up w/some goodies for this kit. It's a good enough kit that I hope the aftermarket responds to satisfy the detail hounds.
Thanks for the MV info!
