Default Clear Corners from Olds

Hey all,

I've noticed that one of the Buicks have clear corners by standard. I believe it'* the Park Avenue. They look identical to the 96-99 corners for the Bonnie, except clear.... mind you I haven't actually seen them upclose... only driving by.

Has anyone tried / taken a closer look to see if we can use them on our 96-99 Bonnies.

**I believe it'* a Buick Park Avenue I've seen these things on, I'm going to look closer next time.
***Could have been an Olds 88

It would make sense the PA and the Bonneville are essentially the same car

Looks like they have a border trim on them. Black on one car, chrome on the other.

I think Tofu/Trofe brought this up before, and it was decided that the trim was part of the lens, so no-go. I'll see if the H Body brigade is still parked at the church next door and try to verify.
