Default Maroon with cleared lights?

Hey guys I was thinking about clearing my headlights and tail lights. The more I think about it... the front lights would look good, but would clear tail lights look good on a maroon car?

IMO, cleared corners looks good on ANY color car.

People aren't clearing corner to match their paint, they are clearing because its unique, and not stock, and it flows better

I don't want to cut into my headlights though, when I had my intrepid the headlights were absolutely horrible. I don't want anything to fog up... I really would rather have working good headlights than clear corners... i guess you could say that i am a little apprehensive.

You don't cut them to clear on the 00+'*. You merely heat the adhesive, open them for a minute and close them back up.

So, use a hairdryer? and then does it seal itself because it'* still hot when you close it back up or do i need to put on my own sealant?

I'd look up the clear corner king'* procedure (Toastedoats). Heat gun..hair dryer..either work and there is enough sealant that you don't add any.
