I just use clear bathroom silicone works great for me. I've sprayed mine with a pressure washer and no leakage. I've seen other people use construction adhesive lol. One guy did a colormatched sonic blue modded headlight that looked awesome, just lettin ya know.

Thanks.

That was one idea I had (to do the sonic blue instead of black). I think it's going to look great either way.

WOOOOW!!! Stop right there, did I hear correct...I can do this to my yellowing aftermarket clear corners?

Can I really swap the "interior" part of my factory yellow corners with aftermarker cheap-bay corners, that are turning yellow on the inside and have been sharpied 3000 times? So I have the clear lense ontop the factory insides?
