What type of LED clip/lens is best to use for 5U Oakley modules? The parts guide is a little vague on this one.

There is no best really, it's all down to personal taste particularly if you are building your own panels. The US builders, particularly those with MOTM modules, used the same one that MOTM uses which is a LED and integral clip.

In my ready made modules I used the plastic coloured LED clips that many suppliers sell. I still have a big bag of Maplin ones:

But Rapid also sell some but not green I notice...

I use the clear ones - fine with a green led inside!
The 'clipping' action isn't always great on them, though may be better with thinner panels. I usually add glue to be sure.

I had spotted the ones on Rapid and wasn't sure if they were right. I may also try some Maplin ones though. Thanks for the clarification. thumbs up

Green ones can be found at farnell P-N. 117-5495

Rapid are dropping that line or that's what they told me

Rapid seem to be dropping lots of lines at the moment sad
