I looked, but I didn't see anything, because I think that I would have to remove parts to see the pegs. I would guess that if they are a little loose, then there should be some type of grommet there. All I was able to see was three mounting bolts and a yellow plastic snap.

im wondering if it may be possible to do the "Hartman mod" on those like the stock explorer corners...

I don't think that it is possible. The amber plastic is molded into the clear plastic, not glued like the explorers.

I can appreciate the work that went into it, but I'm not liking the look. May just be the pictures.

i like not having the clears for now. i really like having proper and safe lighting and with yellow corners i can have proper amber bulbs and be safe, but with the clear corners i'd have to try and match my hid's with white ad i'm not sure how it would turn out.

all that said, bbx had clears made by a guy cutting them with a laser. Hartman's mod wouldn't work. All in all though you got to picture it with the blue paint, the clears are more important on white imo

The HID maching is why you use amber bulbs. But I still like the look of the clear corners.

You will never be able to match the HID's color, beleve me. I went though everybulb, LED out there and nothing looks better than the Amber Titanium bulbs.

I understand. But I bet even after you have it all done and painted. Someone will walk up and say "You still have stock corners!?!"
