thats how i did mine. i took all the orange completely out of them. some people like to leave the corner piece in, or even the whole orange strip in.

Are there really different styles to it? Aside from how much of the orange you leave in or take out? Because I've decided that I'm too cheap to go and retrofit mine.

There are a lot of combinations for it, and how you paint it, a lot of people like to leave the blinker area silver and some paint it all black (like sketch 05's picture)...the amber lense is all taste, but if you DIY w/out buying an aftermarket clear headlight, your left only with the amber strips...if you did buy an aftermarket clear headlight you could use the clear strip that they provide...kinda hard to explain...but it all depends on how you paint it and how much you paint. DIY is def. the way to go in my opinion...cause its OEM and the clear outer casing won't yellow as fast...good luck on this!

BTW here are mine:

Thats great so far! What do your headlights look like blacked out with the orange strip removed?Does it look funny not having a clear strip to put in its place?

where can you get clear strips? do you HAVE to buy a clear headlight to get a hold of those strips?

Usually you have to buy a set of blackhousing from ebay or somewhere else


But some people have the strips laying around

silver paint around the housing for the turn signal


That still blocks out the reflecting doesn't it? Even if you were to paint it a light color or something...unless it's just for looks.
