Does any manufacturer out there make generic square or rectangular clear headlights (similar to the Elf round ones)suitable for use in 1/35 scale. I'm modifying a truck and would like to swap the round lights for rectangular ones.

Ian,

Try looking at the Little Cars website - they do a whole series of 'Little Lenses', including a few rectangular ones. They may be a bit small for what you're after but I use the round ones regularly and like them.

Other options as well!

Other options as well! you can simply re-cut one of the large MV lenses to correct shape or use foil/silver Mylar and shape it to correct shape then place a drop of 5 minute epoxy onto the backing!
