Focus on the 1992 ACS - New Corners and Street Shoot!
 
Well I finally got motivated today to make the change that myself and others have been commenting on for a while now... The clear corners. Since I hate the frosted looking clears I decided that I would make my own variation that would compliment the looks of the headlights

I broke out the dremel tool and separated the lenses from the housings, masked off the center sections and painted the inside of the reflective portion Satin Black. I then plastic welded the lenses back to the housings via soldering iron...

Here is the end result (hood is popped if you're wondering about fitment)

















Had some clears in the garage that i just popped in to make a comparison...

I like those new corners. They really do compliment the headlights. Nice job chris.

Just buy some smoked corners they are cheap and look a thousand times cleaner than this pos, sorry.

Hey Infamous, I can't tell but is your wing flat or rounded at the back? It's ac correct?

jeremy 03-29-2010 12:24 PM

no likey.. the car looks pretty sweet otherwise.

I agree with just buying smoked corners, even depo's are very cheep

INFAMOU$ 03-29-2010 01:15 PM

I may get some smoked ones and see how they look... For now tho, these will do, I think they are different and compliment the headlights better than the frosted texture that OEM styles have...
