Default Should I clear my corners? I can't decide...

Hey guys,

I'm trying to decide if I should clear my corners. I've added new rims, several other touches to the exterior. Then I looked at my corners and I thought, "On some days, the corners look good, but on other days, it is fugly." It kinda clashes with my scheme I have going... which is monochromatic (uniform color or similar color) with touches of red there and here (gotta keep red in there since Pontiac is widely associated with red)

My main concern is the "grated" (I don't know what to call it) middle section of the corner that looks so cheap and ricey. Plus I doubt the housing is "jeweled" like the headlights. I would really like clear lenses like the headlights on my corners so it doesn't look cheap.
I'm teeter-tottering

Whatta you think?

i saw go for it. although, i recommend buying some off ebay, just because if you mess up a corner, then ur gonna have to buy a new one anyways, and there not too expensive.

Hmm, golly I don't know. I thought it was one of those "cut a line and peel it off" deals. Looks like I'm grossly misinformed. I'll consult the techinfo after this message.

Okay I read and reviewed the techinfo, it looks harder now.

I'll check into the eBay clear corners and see if I like them or not. Because sometimes, aftermarket clear corners look so crappy...

Jeez I don't know, it kinda looks mismatched IMO. I'll have to get a closer look at school tomorrow.

The headlights look reflective while the corners look "flat silver" ehhh

I have a 96-99 corner light appart in my room right now. You CAN clear them yourself. its not hard at all. You just need to cut them open, pop the amber out, and glue them back together. No real challenge.

And it is a chrome finish behind the amber lense.
