7” headlight shells

While trailering my ‘03 Caterham SV back from my race shop the day before the Se7ens meet at NJMP I noticed the right headlight started bobbing around. It turned out the spot welds connecting the shell and mounting “bubble” had all broken. I then just removed the headlights and continued on to the NJMP event. I ordered replacement lights from Caterham just assuming they were the same (I know… ass-u-me). Those turned out to be 5 1/4” as advertised, the lights on my car are larger 7”. I like the larger lights as they give the car an older retro look. Caterham doesn’t list 7” headlights. Does anyone know where to source these?  In the meantime I will try to repair my bucket but I fear welding may discolor the chrome.

This is one of those items where Caterham may still be able to get it but don't add it to the online store.  Might be worth a call to ask. Regarding other sources, I know both SVC and Car Builder Solutions in the UK carry that style in that size, but they might differ slightly from the Caterham version.
