Pre-98 Campy Ergo Hoods

So, I am assuming that pre-98 Campagnolo ErgoPower brifter hoods do not come in any color other than black....cause I cannot find them anywhere. Does anyone know if that is the case?

I never remembered that they came in any color but black. But then I never tried to find out. Andy. Who has 8 bikes with the pointy black Ergo hoods on them.

I love the pointy ones.

So I need to go post-98 if I want color...that's no fun. Perhaps I can make some. All you need is a mold and some silicon, right? I work at a university and the people in the art department, especially the sculptors, can make just about anything. Perhaps this is possible. Perhaps I could 3D scan the black hood, then print up a mold that I could then inject with white silicon. Yeah, that does sound like a lot of trouble...but what am I supposed to do, use black and screw up my color scheme? Besides, I am sure I can put a GTA on that.

I guess it might be easier just to paint some black ones white...
