They came as part of the wingtip kit, but they must be trimmed and fit. I thought it was actually good practice for doing the canopy only on a smaller scale.

I do not think it would be hard to make the lenses actually, especially if you have access to an uncut wingtip, but it would likely be more trouble than it's worth. My fear is that Van's drops the kit (and replacement lenses) since the newer wingtips don't use them and I then subsequently crack or break a lens. That's why I've been thinking about to make a replacement if need be.
