Default cleared corners...

I've been looking around and found some of the pics you guys have of cars with the cleared corners... White96SE has the same car (few years age difference) with them... I "think" they look ok, but I'm not sure. I guess some input would be nice... and where to find them online. Thnx

Clear your corners first by hand, save you some money. If you really like them you can stay with it, or always put the orange plastic back in.

highly disagree... you will waste WAY to much time by doing it yourself to see if you like it... just look at some pics around here...

it takes the same amount as the ones on ebay, as it does in supplies to do it urself

I'd go with the ebay corners also.
If you don't like them,you can always stick the stock ones back in and someone around here would prolly pick them up.

It only takes maybe 30 minutes to pry it apart and glue it back together. I have done it twice. If you got a dremel then supplies aint a big deal, just need a little tube of some good glue that costs 4$. I used a flat head screwdriver the first time. Remember, it does not matter how messy the back is, as long as the front looks good.
