They look great on a Saphire blue car.Got them on E bay.Clear lens and the backing is chrome.Came with orange bulbs but left the clear bulbs in.Install:turn wheels,pull round cover.Reach in.1/8 turn to disconect light socket and get socket wires out of the way.10MM wrench.Shorter is better.Losen with wrench.unscrew by hand.Pull out the old housing,clean residue from light housing indent in valance and put in the new one.Simple.Small hands are a plus.I did it lying down next to the car on my back.Should have done it sooner.

The car with clear corners looks GREAT!Wonderful.The way it should have been if you have Sapphire blue.GULP.I don't have a digital camera.But you will kick yourself for not having done it sooner.I think I have good taste.Like smooth flowing lines.No wings spoilers etc on my car.NO stripes either like the kamaro or rustang people.BTW I think the new raffle car is FUGLY GTS Bruce.

Not that SAPPHIRE needs the help but it does improve the look much cleaner.Clean and smooth wins the race no pimping needed on SAPPHIRE!!!!!! WE are not biased just right!!!
It's a shame they have not put the color on anymore Vipers.:headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

I know this is a super old thread, but I figured this might help someone save a good bit of money if they decide to go with clear front corners on their 1st or 2nd gen Viper. You can have a nice pair of clear front corner lenses with amber LEDs for right around $13 and some change. I did this on my GTS and I love them and they look great, plus they're amber LEDs. They even sit nice and flush with the bumper and don't protrude like the stock amber ones. First, I did a lot of digging around on ebay and found these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/271591373897 They're $9.95 for a pair or $16.95 for 2 pair https://www.ebay.com/itm/271591374653

Next, get some of these to plug into the factory 92-02 Viper 194 bulb socket. These are the 4 pack, but the next link is for the 2 pack. https://www.ebay.com/itm/402291938738 https://www.ebay.com/itm/383969435808?_trkparms=amclksrc=ITM&aid=1110018

Remove the metal studs from the stock amber lenses and thread them into these new clear housings and use a little JB Weld to secure them. In order to remove the metal studs from the stock corner lenses and also to thread them into the new clear ones, I simply tightened two 10mm nuts together on one stud and then I could back them right out of the stock amber marker light housing and thread them into the new clear LED housing. Once they're threaded into the new LED housing, simply loosen the nuts and back them off. Don't tighten them very much, it doesn't take much to secure them into the plastic housing. Go very easy with them. Next, twist the wires on the new clear units and the 194/168 harnesses together and heat shrink them. I also used some Automotive Goop sealant/adhesive to seal any open holes where water could possibly enter the lenses, just as an extra measure of caution. And just like that, for about $16 you have nice looking flush clear corners with amber LEDs.

I hope this helps you guys save some money and avoid the "Viper tax".
