Default My 97SE gets clear corners

My corners arrived, so I decided to put them in today. For anybody considering doing this, they recommend you have them professionally installed. Please, forget that, it took like 2 minutes per light, all I needed was a #2 Philips screwdriver. I took some before and after pics:

clear corners seem to complement silver cars so well.

They look great!

looks great aginst the Silver paint....

Here is a tip...take out your front turn siganls in your headlamps and paint them silver...they will appear silver when off, buit still light up amber...and it will give it a uniform look across the front

That'* on my list to do next. I bought some yellow bulbs for the corners, so they'll still light up yellow. But those yellow front signal lights do throw off the look, so if I get a chance tomorrow I'm going to frost them with a silver mist.

I don't think they're right for every color bonnie, but I do like the overall look on my silver bonnie, where the entire headlight assembly now looks like one clear piece. It'* a minor change, to be sure, and it'* strictly cosmetic. I'd expect most people will get more bang out of something like better tires, exhaust, and intake. This is just a little visual change. Granted, it'* not for everyone, but I think I prefer the look on my silver bonnie, and it was dead-simple to install them, so it'* a pretty easy modification that anybody can do.

Man I really gotta take a new sig picture!
