Default would this work? clear corners

I was driving home yesterday and noticed the Buick Lesabre (it was somewhere in the 96-99 year)has clear corners.
so.... would they fit on the same year Bonnevilles?

Doesn't the Buick LeSabre have very different lights from the bonneville?
I know because my sister has one.

yup. wont' work. Totally different. The clear corner you see is for the cornering lamps. They light up the roads to the sides when you turn at night so you can see the road you're turning onto better.

that'* a picture of the Riv'* lit up with low beams. (they're only turned on when the turn signal is on, and only to the side yoru turn signal is on for.)

All that coupled with the fact that the 2k+ bonnies have an all-in-one headlight-turnsignal housing. If you want clear corners, you're going to have to do it just like everyone else that has done it...

Heat Gun, Razor blade, Screw driver. Remove your head/tail lights. Remove the clips around the perimeter (if there are any). Heat the clear lense with a heat gun to get the sealer to give some, or I think you can use a razor blade to cut the sealer between the clear lense and the black backing. Pull the lense apart and then remove the orange/amber lense inside. Reinstall in reverse order with some new adhesive around the perimeter of the lense to hold it together. Repeat on the other 3 corners of the vehicle.

I am thinking of doing this sometime this winter when I won't be needing the bonnie (I'd rather drive our '97 Ram 4x4 in the crappy stuff anyway). Mmm... Black car with clear corners all around!!! Now that'* SEXY!!!

** If there is anything wrong with the proceedure for creating clear corners on a 2k+ that I have stated, please correct me. I haven't read anything about it or really even looked at it to figure out the proper way of doing it, I just know from past experience on other cars how it should be done. TIA

Also, I think you may need to put in an amber bulb in order for everything to still be nice and legal...

No I dont want to do it to mine. I noticed that some others liked the look and
was thinking would this be an easier way for them.
like i said it was for the years 96-99
