so clean. But I agree with clear corners, it'll suit the car better and look less ricey.

when are you ordering the ZHP gearknob?

I recently changed my corners, they're tinted now too. Also changed to black grills/gills and yellow tinted fogs. I like it, but still not sure on the fogs...might keep it for a bit then go back to clear fogs.

Sorry, I'm late to the scene again...

I've got a set of black cube trim for RHD coupe.

It's in fair condition, it needs some aluminium black or restoration, as well as some of the panels have lifted slightly off the plastic (just needs re-gluing).

I got it shipped in from UK and cost a fortune but I'm not enthusiastic enough to restore it and reglue it.

If you're still interested, let me know and I'll try and get some pictures up.

I have tinted corners (front indicators) and originally had stealth bulbs in. Turned the hazard lights on to see what they're like and the lights weren't as bright orange as oem. So I switched them back to oem bulbs. I kinda like the orange hue that comes through with the tinted case. Not sure why...
