Trim kits for old style square recessed lights?

We have several of the old style square recessed lights throughout our house, don't really want to replace all of them at this point but wouldn't mind putting on a new trim kit.

Currently they have a not so great looking thick glass that kind of drops down out of the trim.

I suppose we could just paint up the current trim and buy new glass(6 1/2 x 6 1/2 glass). Was curious if anyone knew of a supplier for the entire trim for these lights?

I am not aware of any, but most people are choosing the round style so I really have not kept up with the square ones.

Progress lighting has 2 square recessed trims in their catalog, however they are 9 1/2 and 11 1/2 square.

Perhaps you could just out one room at a time? Most new recessed will require 90 degree C rated wire. If your house is pre 1984 you will have the 60 degree rated wire or less.
