Faux reflector replacement?

We have a 2004 MADP and I am in the process of removing the #*@$ Diamond Shield on the front. A casualty of this process is the need to replace the stick-on reflector under the headlight. The left one was already missing when we got the coach last year and the right one was loose. I steam heated it and pulled it off and a bunch of paint came off from under it so I would really like to replace both of them to finish the job. I called Newmar and "faux reflector bumper" #61605 is discontinued. They said it was a Sharpline product #135238-01 but that is also no longer available from Sharpline.

Any good ideas for an alternative short of leaving them off and repainting that part of the front of the coach? Maybe some sort of similar reflective tape cut to match the old one? We full-time in the coach and, if possible, really want to avoid the time out of the coach and expense of having a repaint and have something that looks acceptable.

Here are two "before" pictures of the "faux reflector" under the headlight when I just started the Diamond Shield removal:

Yellow or Amber which ever you'd like to call it reflector tape (a good brand like 3M) and cut it to the shape you would like then simply install it.

You can lay a piece of paper on the one that's still there and trace an outline of it for a accurate template of it before you try taking it off the coach.
