Clear corners installed.

Hey guys. Just installed the clear corners. Nice fit, nice look.

I wasn't sure what bulbs to get when I ordered the corners, so I got these "light blue" bulbs from Lightlens.com. They suck. The bulbs are shorter and wider at the glass base than stock, so you can't push them down far enough into the housing to twist them in. I had to shave the little plastic bumps on the inside of the housing to make room for the wider-bottomed bulb. The glass is blue, but the light is, well...er...yellow/white/oem.

Looks like I'm gonna get those LED deals from our sponser after all!

The fun never friggin' stops!

The bad thing is now you need euro sidemarkers and euro tails since now you have Clear Corners on the front, Amber Side Markers, and Amber Tail Lights. That's why I'm waiting on that mod, $300 investment all together

The clears look really good though

Hey, those look awesome on your paint! Don't know if I've ever seen that color in person.
I think miztuhdan has a point though, you need to clear what's left more than ever.

Yeah, I guess you guys are right. But I still think it looks better than stock, even withouth the sidemarkers and tails. But that's just me. One thing at a time!
