Default Project Etched Pontiac LED Corners..............

Well, I got the bug in me to get rid of the annoying amber coloring in the cleared corners so my intentions was to pull off the Corners, frost them and then reinstall them.

Well, once I got upstairs with my corners, ideas ran and I fiddled around a bit and remembered that I had 2 Etched Club Stickers. I ended up with this.....

I have decided to place the LED'* on the top of the corner to hide them a little better.

I am hoping to get them in and wired tonight. Ill update with pics when their done.

Yup!! This was only one corner. I needed to see how it looked at both positions.

Thanks, if you already have cleared corners, they are pretty easy to do

Noooo they aren't.

If you have cleared regular corners yourself, they are easy.

If you bought Ebay clear corners..you'd need to cut.

Thanks for the info. I was meaning that if you cleared your corners by yourself, then they are easy to do since they have already been apart.

When I pulled my already clear corners, I just used my hands to pry apart the silicone seal. It was easy, but as bill said, if your clears came from ebay then yes you need to cut and seperate.

Reading issues grasshopper. If you have cleared the regular 92-99 corners yourself..they have already been cut open.
