Clear Corners

So i ordered a new set of clear corners on ebay cause i hate the ones i have. well they came today and they look good but there is only one problem... they are WHITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know i have a white truck but i don't think there gonna look that great on there. any advice? should i call the company and send em back or keep em or what?

Mod 'em like the headlamps are modded....

bake 'em in an oven, take 'em apart, mask the chrome, paint the white black, done.


OR...just paint the white above the lense black and call it good.


We've got threads about sellers on ebay advertising the black clears, but actually sending out white clears.

my truck is white and my clear corners look exactly like yours and i actually like the white on white in looks good in my opinion. it goes with the whole clear/white sorta thing. i have had mine for a year now and they are slowly starting to fade yellow from the sun but my truck never gets garaged and sits out in 110 degree weather during the summer i might look into painting the outside trim of them once it starts getting warmer here

I got the wrong ones off of eBay as well, have the same white ones as you. I just did the headlight mod to them and painted them.

Would you guys post the links for the bad corners to give us a heads up. Pretty soon I am going to order some corners and paint them, and I don't want to get bad ones.

they are all 'good' corners....but the 'bad' corners are the ones posted in this threads first post.....clear lense and the back side is chrome ontop of white. The 'good' ones are chrome ontop of black.


'bad'


'good'

Sorry about that Tucker. I wouldn't have posted that link if I'd known they'd be like that. I'd send them back and tell them you want the black ones or your money bac, shipping at their expense.

unfortunatly that never happends. Refunds are one thing, but shipping is never covered. Just paint them black, but be sure to leave negative feedback for them.

its all good no worries. they are definitely getting negative feedback but i think im gonna just try em out and see how i like them. I kinda expected this to happen anyways haha. its just luck of the draw the way i see it.

To be honest, those corners don't look good, IMO. Not on a black truck.

I'm sure they look good on a white, or lighter colored truck, but on black, or a darker colored truck, they just don't fit IMO.
