Can I replace the lens cover of my hero 5 with that of a hero 7?

I use my hero 5 to record car racing, in the open air. The lens cover breaks regularly- I just ordered a new one every time. Was about to do that again when I noticed those can't be ordered anymore for the hero 5. 

 

Can I use the lens cover replacement meant for the hero 7?

Thanks in advance, Sander

Yes they are the same just not the color.   have you looked into a super suit or that will break to?

Ah brilliant. thanx. I'll order a super suit with that, lets see how sturdy those are. In our racing class a lot of pebbles are flying round- hopefully it'll last now.

it may add that  extra protection.  some of hte super suits require the actual lens to be taken off. and others  simply slide over the camera

 

 do only order  after you fully research.

The Super Suit will give the camera some extra protection but the glass lens is going to get pitted pretty quick if your using it in an environment that is breaking your camera protective lens.
