Default Cleared Corners

When you clear your corners, do you also take out the orange reflectors on the trunk piece??

IMO, it would look better with all the orange removed. It'* a real pain, but it can be done. I did it on mine. Just take your time and prepare to give your Bonne lot'* of patience.

Well i only had a little bit of time today, but i did the fronts. I do really like that look much better, esp. since i have a silver car i think it really looks nice. I will try to be patient with the trunk then, doesnt look fun w/all that silicone.

I'm not sure if you are aware, but the only way to clear the rear lights is with a dremel. The lights are all sealed... way different than the front lights. Be very careful.

Either do that, or try to find some GXP tails and trunk piece at a U-pull it yard or your local junker. Much easier IMO.

it is a pain in the *** to do the rears, you have to cut open the lenses, then break the pieces apart with a screwdriver or pliers to get them out. If i was to do it again, i would just buy the GXP lights, but its a considerable invesment

This may help. It really was'nt that bad, one tool to add to the list of required is a vacume cleaner or can of air to either suck out all the black plastic pieces or blow them out.
