Default side markers (too rice?)

I think a pair of clear side markers with amber bulbs would look pretty sweet.

Too rice. This weekend i'm planning to try something with my turn signals. I'm not sure if it will work out, however if it does, it will look damn awesome! AND! it utilizes the old turn signals, SO, it will flow.

To tone it down Im thinking of putting that vht nightshades or whatever its called on them so that they will appear black until the light goes on. I dont want anything too obvious.
