Need help finding obsolete part 2004 MADP

We have a 2004 Newmar Mountain Aire 4016. Some Newmar coaches in the mid-00s had a glued-on reflectors under the headlights that sort of looked like turn signals. When we got our coach, the driver's side reflector was missing. When I removed the awful 3M Diamond Shield, the passenger side reflector came off along with a 1.5" x 4" chunk of paint under it.

Ideally I want to find a new matched pair of these reflectors but could re-use the passenger side reflector and need to just find the driver's side, used is better than nothing. I would go without them except for the missing paint and the expense of repainting the front of the coach.

Newmar lists them as no longer available and the vendor part number has been a dead end.

Can anyone offer any help finding these or come up with an alternative idea to replace the stock part? Creative ideas welcome!

Attached are pictures of the one I have and where it would fit under the headlight. The third picture shows the one reflector still on the coach when we just got it and before the Diamond Shield was replaced.

Thanks! Click image for larger version

Amber or yellow reflective tape looks close, perhaps you can find it in an auto parts store or someplace that sells it in smaller lengths.

Hmmmm. I'm sure I could outrun those old guys in Newmars. The problem with that idea is there probably isn't another Newmar rally until next year. But, extra credit for creativity!

The prismatic tape is a possibility and it wouldn't be any more hokey than the factory reflectors. Probably the easiest option if nothing else turns up.

Having an old Newmar and not planning to sell it and buy a new one, I asked the head of Customer Service (and parts) at the 2018 Tampa Newmar (NKK) Rally "how long does Newmar keep parts in stock?" and he replied "with a few exceptions, approx 20 years".
Unfortunately, it seems, that it is the part you are looking for that falls into the "few exceptions" bin, I know a few of my parts have.

A quick google of amber reflective tape comes up with numerous options. You would have to cut to fit.

This must be something that Newmar stopped doing. My 2006 doesn't have them.

We have a John Wayne chrome shop near a T&A truck stop. If you have one of these they probably have what you need. They seem to have everything like that.
