Yes, I'm talking about those $20+$15 shipping ebay clears. Anyone have them installed on a black car, prefer to see a trac/gts bumper pic.

Quality's not the best, but these were the clear bumper and corner lights on my first 5th gen convertble, which just happened to be black:

Ah, well... I think I'll just stick with my tinted ambers. I was debating on swapping over to either the ebay smoked bumper lights, or getting the clears and tinting them myself...

Well, I'm thinking about it... it'd be a little touch, not sure if I'd VHT them, or just use window tint.

Not a huge fan of the clear bumper lights/turn signal...

And that's why I was going to either get the "smoked" or tint the regular clears.

Well, if I remember correctly, tuner4life or 92-gt has the smoked lenses... I should borrow them at the Dragon this time around... I'll even take pictures so you can see. If I find the ebay clears on CL for el cheapo I'll lowball 'em and tint them with window tint or something...

Clears look alright with certain colors. Black is not one of those colors. White however looks pretty good with either clear, amber, or smoked/blacked out lenses.

I'm digging my clears.. maybe I will get another set for my white one too! (excuse my missing trim-- took it all off after I hit a deer then put on a new bumper and bought brand new headlight trims and the other two pieces used but I never took pictures of it all back together)

Agreed ...... my vert is white, and the clears look oh so much better than the stock amber ones (I do use amber bulbs in 'em, just to stay "legal" in the dark .....) And I ain't too fond of some of the knock-offs ...... I bought Toyota clears (corners and bumpers) from a fellow forumite parting out his car- couldn't be happier with the looks. ....although, they would look good smoked, as well :cool:

My corners are Toyota, the bumpers are the knock-offs. You have a picture of the bumpers?

Anyone have the OEM Toyota part numbers for the bumpers and corners? I know I've seen the corner #'s on here before but I haven't seen the bumpers....
