Hoods for C-Record era Campy brake levers?

I've sort of resigned myself to picking up a used set of C-Record era Campy brake levers to complement the Monoplaner calipers I acquired recently (though there is a current model Dia-Compe lever which might do the trick). It seems every set for sale on eBay has torn hoods. Is this era lever in the same spot the NR/SR levers were a few years ago - no remaining NOS inventory but also no reproduction hoods either? That seemed to be the situation a few years ago:

Repro Hoods - C-Record Era Campagnolo Brake Levers?

Actually, it's worse, as Hudz appears to have gone out of business.

I was still able to find NOS replacement hoods for my C Record era, Chorus brake levers, except it is in black. This was just about 6 to 8 months ago, from a seller in Spain, at eBay.

^ Those look pretty good! I wonder if they would fit my Athena (I think) Aero levers? Oops, just saw they have the holes in them for non-aero (which these Athena levers will also do).

Thanks for the links. I love how the seller only mentions at the end of the description that they are reproductions, but clearly tries to imply they are the real deal by staging them on a Campy box and calling them NOS in the title.

source for Campy C-Record brake lever hoods (1st Gen)

did a "search" & found this thread...I have a 1st generation C-Record brake levers ("cobalto") and my understanding (according to Le Cycleur's website on Campy levers) the hoods from the 2nd & 3rd gen do not fit. Does anyone have experience w/ campy hoods and compatability? I'm tempted to go w/ NR or SR as they look similar but might be snug fitting...any info would be great....thanks, christian

If you still need a set let me know. I am virtually certain that I still have a set of NOS Campagnolo ones in black but don't want to search until you confirm the need for them. The black repos above look quite good. There is a bit too much granularity on the outside and they are missing the protruding inner edges towards the front, but otherwise will pass the 5 foot test.
