Bulbs for clear corners???

I got my clear corners about 2 or three weeks ago and I like the difference but I hate the fact that the orange bulbs still glow and make it look kinda like the normal lense. I want it to be totally clear with out orange. I have looked at some places to find clear bulbs that shine amber but I havent had any luck can anyone help or does anyone know if they make bulbs like that.

you can either paint your bulbs with special paint that is made for it or i just use a very THIN layer of white spray paint. By using regular spray paint bulbs wont last as long but it looks 10x better.
 












what exactly do you mean?
 






I bought amber bulbs and spray painted them with silver spray paint. They don't show in the clears when off, and shine amber when on. Better than spending $40.
 






I have put it many clear corners on for friends. The amber bulbs are coated amber so they reflect that same color in the lense that why they look the same. You can get corner bulbs (i recommend white or blue it looks really good) for $4.95 (you need 4) a piece at

I know u can get bulbs but I want clear ones that shine amber so I stay legal I dont need another stupid ticket for something like that.
 






high temp silver spray paint, wally world like 4 bucks

tape the contact ends of the bulbs up, and then tape the bulbs to a stick and stick the stick in the ground. spray a very light coat of the high temp paint

don't want to do too think but not too thin, maybe have a pratice bulb. so you get the feel of how thin you want to do it

nicely done
 






does anyone have any idea of the correlation between painting their bulbs silver and the yellowing of their lenses? im not sure if spraying my bulbs silver made them yellow faster
 






i don't think it makes them yellow- i've done this every since i got mine two years ago with no problems. i would recommend silver paint- and use the high temp or else it will get runny on the bulb and run off.



also- shoot me an email at wattsupcustoms@hotmail.com and we'll set something up to fix your amp problem.
