Custom Tail Light lens

I have 4 NOS AMC park lights from the '60s. These are the simple oval ones with the thin chrome edge that mount on an angle like in the bumper face. They use an 1157 bulb and would be perfect for a rear pan if they didn't have amber lenses.

The lenses are flat so a custom red one would be easy to make if I could get the right Lexan with a difused back side. I don't want to use clear red plexi. I want them to look like real tail light lenses.

Has anyone had any luck finding the right material for custom lenses?

Tom
