No longer WANTED: 5 3/4 Black headlamp bezel

Bit of a long shot but has anybody  got a spare Caterham one in a sound condition they want to part with?

I've looked at SVC parts but the headlamp bowl/bezel  do not appear to be the same fitting as the Caterham one on the car currently.
 

My one is losing pieces of powder coat/ bubbling up and is less than 2 years old!  Unfortunately it's not covered by warranty because I've dared to exceed 12,000 miles (ffs)

Otherwise it'll be a Hammerite job

UPDATE:- Originals re-powder coated :-)

Smoothrite satin black is a pretty good match for powder coat.

Are you looking for the bit that sits on the front and holds the lamp it? If so, I have one, but it has a small dent in it.

Alternatively, you can buy just that part from Caterham.

Thanks for the offer TigerSuperSix. I thought I'd better take off and have a closer look at the second bezel and it too has started to bubble. I phoned Caterham but they don't sell the bezels separately, at least in black.

So I've decided to have the two re-powder coated.

That's strange, I bought one from them last year. Must have stopped doing them.
