Default Aftermarket Corner Lights? 96-99

Hey all,

Just was surfing ebay and came across this....
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...982694718&rd=1

It says it'* an "aftermarket" corner light replacement...... odd.
Who makes or sells these in aftermarket?
Probably not as high quality as the OEM, but they are cheaper.... and since we are going to take them apart anyways to clear them, might not be a bad idea.

I think Im still gonna wait for someone to make clear corners and purchase them. Ebay already has a seller making them for 92-95 its only a matter of time now for us 96-99 guys.

Agreed...... I cleared mine..... but they were already scuffed and cracked when I bought the car, so they don't look the best right now.

How did you get them split open? Dremel? I have tried in the past to split them open to do a custom clearing.
