Moding corner lights.

i know that people have done the headlight mod, but does anyone know how to paint the corners black. I was going to buy some clears and paint them or the 06 corners. Also, if i get the 06 corners will they fit on a 98(with the 01 conversion) or a 01? Thanks for any help anyone has for me!!

i guess you could just night shade the corners or buy black ones on ebay, and yes the 06's will fit but it there is more stuff involved with eht conversion

if your talking about pulling the corner light apart two paint it like the headlights, yes it can be done. stock corners are easier to do then the clear one, or so that is what i've heard. i will be doing it soon after i finish my current mod.

In addition to blacking out the reflector, I also painted the inside of the outer rim of the lenses on my 06/07 corners. That hides the glue slot and makes the corners match the modded headlights better, IMO.

I had to heat them twice for 10 minutes at 190F to get them to fully separate. The background and the rim of the clear lens were then painted satin black before reassembly.
