Made a little change.....

Ok, so I had an issue with the clear corners I bought off Ebay and after attempting to contact the seller multiple times, I've pretty much given up on getting a refund. The left corner is fine but the right corner isn't made correctly and the bulb socket won't fit correctly. So since I have this set of lights, I figured I'd try to fix the issue myself. So I want from this.....

Headlight mod and stock corners with black backgrounds....

Yea on the clear corners? I like them better I think. I might need to make an adjustment to the top of the passenger corner it looks like. It looks like there's a pretty big gap at the bottom....not sure if there's too much I can do about it though. We'll see. Now for the KC SlimLites.....

Those clears look really bad, where did you get them from?

Go back to the stockers or get 06 corners

I like the stock ones better, but that is because I like amber marker lights.

Yea the reflectors on the clear corners is a little....odd lol. We'll see. I'm gonna leave them in for awhile and see if they grow on me. If not, I'll put the amber ones back in.

I put the factory corners in the oven at 250 for 8 minutes, popped right apart.

Why is everyone hating on the corners? They match the headlights and blend in, and don't stand out like the amber corners.
