No kidding. I read a thread a long time ago on a website that doesn't exist anymore, on how to take the orange OUT of the stock lens -- but I forgot what it said.

Aside from any cool factor, why would one want to take the yellow out of the corner lense?

Careful if you do that - The feds may require the front side lights to be orange. Don't get into a position where you are inviting some trigger-happy traffic cop to write you for it. You could put an orange bulb in a clear lens, though. I've seen that.

Even the orange bulb won't get you by if the guy wanted to be a dick. It HAS to be an orange REFLECTOR, by law. Now, I've had clear corners and blue bulbs back in my younger days -- and never had a problem. I will get the clear markers and run a clear bulb in it, or a superwhite, or something that matches my headlights when available.

I've talked with a guy at H&R via email and I asked him where the clear side markers came from and he told me it came with all orignal Ford equipment " The amber side markers, the chrome accent fog lamps, and the chrome trim tail lamps and head lamps all came as original equipment from Ford."  maybe someone good with a photo program changed it for the picture. I'd like some too.

well i have done a few things with head lights before, if you stick a headlight housing in hot wather you can take it apart, once you hacce it cracked open you just pop the orange off, you can get small white reflectors from and auto parts place, i guess but it to size and shape glue it and stick the housing back together

has anyone come across any clear corner lenses?

as an aside...

I remember the 80's Tbird and Cougar having clear turning lenses on the side...

how did they get around the legalities??

...or was there also an amber lense built into the light assembly? I cannot remember.

not always. it may depend on what state you're in.

this is Washington states law

(1) Front clearance lamps and those marker lamps and reflectors mounted on the front or on the side near the front of a vehicle shall display or reflect an amber color.
