Not sure what you mean about plucking out the amber and being afraid of breakage. I've watched Toaster do it like 10 times... didn't look like a possible break issue could arise, please elaborate.

Meanwhile..welcome to the club!


You talkin' to me?!? YOU TALKIN' TO ME?!? :P I know you're not....

Oh, were you talkin' to Stitch??

If the light doesn't reseal what type of sealant do you use to reseal?

spread a small (I mean small) bead of the same type of black silicon (you can pick it up at any auto parts store...I think it is called windshield silicon)

Huh? In Ontario I've never heard of such a thing? Bulbs are all you need. If you have to stick the amber under the hood and if they ask where your orange reflectors on your front are open the hood and show em!

here in winnipeg, on sunday nights in the summer cops will pull anyone over for any type of modification just to **** people off. They are trying to make people stop going out on cruise night, (too bad it doesn't work)

You're right, at least in Canada. For anyone who is curious, here is a link. Table III lists requirements for passenger vehicles.

Really sucks cause the clear corners look awesome :(

I need a dremel to do so, and when I do, it will be a separate thread.

the amber reflectors are required everywhere as far as i know, but we have never seen a documented case of someone being pulled over/ticeted/fail inspection for having clear corners on their bonneville
