These are the new corners that rx8strakes is producing.

http://www.rx8strakes.com/index.asp?...ROD&ProdID=444

These are pretty cool. I think they would look especially good on BB. They also sell a DIY version that isn't assembled so you can paint the backside, install LEDs in it, etc. I'd be a bit worried that the crystal clear plastic would get scratched up. Also, whatever bulb you use is going to look just like a point of light, it won't fill out the whole corner like the textured lense does. I'll have to see more pics before I decide I like them enough to get them... but certainly a possibility.

Don't think my SS would look good with those but it looks good on your WWP. A BB 8 would probably benefit the most from it though.

i already ordered them and thought about making a similar thread, buti was hoping it would stay a secret for a while.

anyway, they're sick. if only the amber leds had black bases. i guess there's always electrical tape.

I just bought a set of unassembled.

I'm going to paint the black plastic silver. It will match the car even better than the old clear corners.

silicone sealant, plastic sealant, or acrylic glue should work well. just make sure it's clear and completely sealed.

these clear corners are awesome. i always wanted the lens clear to match the headlights.
