I think it would look real nice if possible, but it doesn't seem like it is.

you CANT clear the stock rear turn signals the only way to do it would be to replace the outer lense as stated above

OK, so this is old news and we already knew what I would find, but here'* the pics anyway...

Note that all the plastic is yellow all the way through, not just coated.

Interesting...the turn signal is a completely enclosed unit, so, like CC says, you COULD replace the yellow lense with a clear plastic one. The trick is finding a good way to make a clear lense.
