Default question about clear corners

Ok, I searched a little for this, but couldn't find anything on installation.

About 2 weeks ago I was at a super market and I saw a cart by my head light. I move it and my head light was cracked. Nothing was damaged except the plastic part. I saw that there are clear corners available and I was wondering how hard is installation on them? And what color blubs would I need to get for my blinkers?

Any help would be greatly appriciated. I'm a complete n00b.

Installation is simple, it'* just a couple small hex-head screws holding the corner lamps in...if you're talking about MAKING them, it'* a little more difficult. They have clear corners on ebay (right now I think they are out of stock), or you can make your own by taking them apart and pulling the orange reflector out and sealing them back up.

If you find any on ebay, there is a clear reflector in place of the orange on yours. If you make them, you won't have any reflector piece in there and you will actually see the bulb. I'd go with the common clear 194 for the bulb that'* amber when lit, but clear when not lit. You can do any color you want, but I'd stay legal.

they ebay clears out of stock and it would be best to make your own at this point

Yeah I've been looking for the ebay ones for 2 months now with no luck, Mainly because both my corners have cracks in them and are superglued back together now. And taking them apart would probably detroy them
