Default Clear corners? Lots of info!

For those that aren't aware, we actually have two Techinfo articles on this subject:

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/techinfo/?article=9

and

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/techinfo/?article=67

There are several ways of doing this, and any or all of them can be right if the end result is good. The point of this topic is to make everyone aware this information is in Techinfo, and give the opportunity for everyone to ask questions or discuss the procedures.

Also, if you dont have a Dremel....you can do what I did
I took the corner lenses inside, and used my moms Blowdryer on it, MAX HEAT, MAX SPEED. held it right up against the top corner of the lense for about 5 minutes, it got VERY hot, I had a skinny flat head availabe, and started to pry, the craking noise that you will hear is all the old dried silicon breaking loose..DONT WORRY. Once you get it started, its very simple!

hmm.... this should be a sticky but, why don't we have a "how to" about our tail lenses too? The 00'* are doing this as well. I guess 96-99er'* are the odd ball in clearing tails.
