Looks really good on there with your color. The clear markers are one of those easy and cool mods
And doing the turn signal mod is definitely worth doing.

Looks good. Just a heads up, I lost a reflector on my first set, so I used Loctite super glue on the second set. I also drilled a drain hole in the bottoms to prevent condensation buildup. Second set is going strong!

That is good advice, I drilled some small holes on the bottom of my markers before installing and have not had any moisture problems.

Did you superglue them? Mine seem to be holding strong since I did that. I think they are still on eBay from time to time.

Can you provide some details about what you did to superglue these lenses? Did you take the lens off first or just put the glue on around the edges with the lens still attached?
