I did something like that before. I had an Ford Tempo with a broken head light. I used the plastic form the packaging for the mounting kit for a head unit, cut ti to size and it worked great. You actually couldn't tell that much except the "new" one was cleared than the factory one.

An ex-friend of mine once used a similar setup, but hers consisted of a mason jar and mass quantities of duct tape. It worked out pretty good for quite a while. She got pulled over once, but local law enforcement knew who she was...plus she was quite attractive, so that doesnt hurt anything.

Heck, if duct tape is good enough for NASCAR, it'* certainly good enough for me.
