Default 92-95 turn signal fab..

I HATE my amber turn signals.. but I LOVE the cleared turns on the 92-95. I need a new driver'* side turn signal, due to mine being broken [still works though.. so no emergency]. I have PM'd Merlin 91/97, and he said they were completly different in the way they mount, so I know it wouldn't be just a bolt up and go type deal. So, what would be involved? Is it taller than mine? From the looks, it doesn't seem to go quite as far back, so i'd need to do some fiberglass fabbing. So, what do you guys think? How much work would it take? And would I be able to do it with fiberglass and a grinder? and $20? loL

Yes, the WHOLE lens is amber plastic. There is the possibility to take off the amber part, and put the bulb behind the clear plastic [empty at the moment, but a stocket could be made]. However, the bottom part where the bulb went before would still be there, and then that would look like ****, because its not covered by anything. I have thought of doing it buick style, but then that would look even worse.. so, yeah. What would be a replacement for fiberglass? Metal?

Yeah, but I want my car to be STOCK looking unless you really start getting into her. The blackouts don't look as "stock" on a white car either, it flows on black though.
