Got my clear JDM corners on my car today, wondering what you guys thought! I like them a lot better than the orange with my car at least, it doesn't stick out as much.

Not bad, I'm not a big fan of the 90-91 front but with the clear turns in addition it looks very clean and updated.

clear corners are always sexy. Do you think people in japan are like "I finally got my amber corners in...YES!"

I hope not ;) Yeah, I'm a big fan of the clear corners and turns (some car colors look better with them than others, imho. I love the way they look on my white vert ... look great on Mr Celica's car as well :cool: )

Not sure if they even care about celicas but I do know they buy USDM Integra front conversions.

i have another question and i'd like to hear your opinions! should I keep the clear bumper lights i bought off e-bay a few years ago and go back to the stock/original look of the car with the amber bumper lights? i don't know if the bumper lights are too shiny for it or not...

I think it looks good. But, the ambers look good too. You can't go wrong either way.

I vote for keepin' 'em .... I don't like mix'n'match clears and ambers .. I prefer to see all clear lenses or all amber, if necessary. I did cave in and use amber bulbs, though, as to keep it legal for the most part (other than not having the amber reflector on the corner....but hey, it lights up the right color....I doubt TN police are gonna hassle me over THAT...

Mr Celica

yea i kept the clears in the corners, but the signals have to be amber, so i have amber bulbs in the bumper.. i haven't gotten stopped for the corners yet.. i figure ill change em when i get pulled over. haha

i got stopped at a check point last summer. i thought they were only checking for drunk drivers, but they were checking for all types of violations. i received a ticket for not having a front license plate, but they didn't say anything about the clear corners...so i think you'll be ok.

Mr Celica
06-07-2007, 02:13 AM
did you put your front plate on?

i just put it back on to get the ticket written off and show the court, but i took it back off. i carry it in my trunk just in case. ill just tell them it fell off and havent had time to put it back on....

hahaha nice! my license plate is bent to shit... i'd love to take it off but NH cops are douche bags.

that's such a stupid ticket! some cars don't even have a place to put one anymore. Look at the new corvette, how do put one on it without looking like a spaz?

Mr Celica
06-07-2007, 04:33 AM
yea its lame anyways... i'd love my car with just a smooth bumper and no ugly license plate on it. oh well.

Another option to throw out there. There are actually 2 styles of "clear" bumper lights. One is the style you have, but there is also a style that is more matte looking. They're still clear, but have a texture on the inside similar to the stock lights. So they're clear plastic, but not see-through clear. I think they match the clear corner lights quite well. See: http://www.yyonline.org/viewphoto.asp?id=4&index=4 for a picture of my car with them installed.

I think they match the clear corner lights quite well. I believe mine are the same you have - they seem very similar to originals, other than color. I can't remember what I paid for all mine (bought them used - but in perfect condition - from another celitech member) ...was a "package deal" for the clear corners/bumpers and for all of his vert roof weatherstripping - am very pleased with the results .... no pics as of yet, though...
