I have had the clear corners on my truck now for about 5 years and they are still as clear as the day they were new!

I may make the yellow into red, but dont think I want to do clear tails. [/B][/QUOTE]

How would you go about doing that? Details would be great...

I wouldn't say mine are yellow.... I would just say that they have a tint of it.


I got my stock ones just sitting around at home.. I'm going to make them clear, see what happens

i think the trick is to get the older clears- it sounds like maybe the newer ones aren't of as high of quality
