NOT '06s--Faux Sixes!

After 2 epic fails modding my eBay '06 cornes, I came up with this the other day:
WAIT FOR IT!
I had some modded clears that I got with my modded headlights that I've been running for a couple of years, but the modded '06 corners have been growing on me lately. After destroying 2 sets of corners, then kinda saving one set (which I still wasn't satisfied with), this idea came to me. It's great if you've already made the investment in clears, don't want the hassle of trying to get some '06s apart and modding them, or, in this day and age, just plain cant afford it--plus, it's 100% reversable. Total investment (cause I got my supplies at cost)-under 2 bucks!


My failed '06s for reference:


From farther away:


All in all, I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. How-To to come. Let me know what you think.

Not into it, it would look cleaner without it there. IMO the 06+ are popular because they're as close as you can get to a clear corner that still looks OEM in terms of quality. Most of the clear corners out there look like crap. I'll put it this way, if there was a way you could remove the orange reflector from inside them I think that most people would...
