I remember buying a pair of these years ago when I did an XR conversion on my 1998 AU Futura wagon, AU2 XR front, lights (all brand new, no wreckers stock available back then), and 17" Tickford alloys

If someone can supply a template, you could source some black plastic sheeting of the same thickness from a plastic fabricator and cut your own...might even find something at Bunnies that could be used also
