you can not link the pics off your hard drive, no one can see them

you have to upload them onto a web server then link them here.

sweet......could you post instructions? i'm interested in this DIY. Where did you get the material?
why would you do this? clear corners for the sedan can be bought for less than $30 a pair now. Now if you can make euro clears, then I'll be interested.

Hmmm, those don't look much different than the aftermarket clear corners you can buy...Look identical infact...Now if they had a JDM clear(non-white plastic) look to them, that would be better.

actually.......

it would not be hard to do that,.....i could have done that,...but i decided to go with the smoked plastic because i had some lying around the house,.....this mod can easily be made to make them look like euroclears,......all you need is a dremel,........the plastic u want to use,......and a sealant,........i used silicone,....but whatever floats your boat............ just break off the amber,.......BE VERY CAREFUL..........i used the dremel to then chip off the excess,......then i cut into shape the replacement piece,......then cleaned everything up,......and sealed it in with silicone,.......thats pretty much it,.....i didnt spend 30 dollars,.......this mod was free,.....i had all the materials,.......all you need is a little time and patience,.....it took me a little over 3 hrs to do both sides,.............:-D

how did you get the new peice to curve in the shape of the corner lights. You should try this with the tails.
Also can you get a clearer pic and a closer pics, I want to see how you sealed up the lense. Thanks
