C6 headlight Lenses

Would any one have any C6 headlight lenses they wish to sell, I only need the right/passenger side but happy to buy a pair if anybody has any. Plenty available on Ebay and the regular suppliers but seems a lottery as to what you get as the originals have all been used up so everything is now pattern part.
Just FYI mine was damaged simply wiping a solvent over the surface, it has crazed the whole lens, no idea why, its something I have done many times before on these lenses removing tar spots etc, I thought it may be some king of coating so tried again the following day to see if I could remove any coating but the same solvent never touched it this time, I even tried the other lens and again no problem, all I can think of is car was in the sun for a few hours before I wiped the lens so perhaps the fast evaporation may have been the cause, all very strange.DSC_0120.JPG

No not polish able, cracks go right through.
Have sourced a single lens in the USA just waiting to see if there are any in the UK before ordering.

Which method did you use to remove the lenses? heat gun or in the oven?
The last pair I changed I used the oven, but I see all the recommendations on line seem to now use a heat gun.
Anyway new lens on the way with gasket and glue from HPI who supply the major stockists, cheaper to go direct £132 to my door with all duties etc paid.

I went with the Oven option. I tried three different temperatures, in the end it needed about 140C before the glue softened enough to pry the lens off. It does make the oven smell of plastic for a day, but it hasn't melted or broken anything. The other benefit of this was that I could carefully peel the glue out in one piece, no scraping required. That's a good price. :)

No just ordered them over the weekend, but just the one passenger side lens with gasket and glue. Lens £89 shipping £19 Import & customs £24 all via Ebay global shipping right to the door.
Most are around the $249 per pair plus Gaskets and then astronomical shipping around $60, or R Seibring who makes the best lenses at $310 pair for just the lenses.
Have used HPI before and the fit just fine.

Well took the plunge and ordered the other lens and 4 halos, so just need to get them all fitted.
Got the lights out yesterday and lenses removed with the help of a hot oven, then spent another hour removing the old adhesive residue, going to use tiger grip polyurethane adhesive sealer as I don't want any silicone around, but wont get on them now until Thursday as I am away from home. A few breakages of the studs holding the bezel to the main light box, these need to be held with a E4 torx socket to prevent the studs turning in the the plastic bezel and breaking the stalks but a bit of epoxy will sort that.
Will take a few pics of assembly when i get a minute.
