Pedal Reflectors?

So I picked up this Fuji Ace that was ~15 years old. It works great! My only problem is that the reflectors on the pedals that were clip-on fell off because the plastic got worn. I tried looking on many websites and wasn't able to find a replacement. Do you guys know where I can find some? I think it's a quill type of pedal (maybe rat-trap), but I can't be too sure. Thanks in advance...

Why not skip the reflectors and just upgrade to these LED pedals for even more visibility?

Two ideas. First,just look around. I've seen dozens of pedal reflectors laying on the ground. Pick up a couple and RTV them and they should stay put. Second,just put some reflective tape on the pedals. Nothing to fall off.

I have SPDs and I've been thinking about putting reflective tape on the backsides of the cranks. Should give a good flashing up/down motion.

Too bad SPDs don't have the reflectors on the pedals. That is such a good idea
