Clear corners and Eyelids

Should I make sure that I install my clear corners before I put my eyelids on? Does it matter, or does the eyelid not touch the corner?

The eyelid might cover the corner. I would install the eyelid using velcro tape, and not the double sided tape. This way you can remove the eyelid whenever you need to take out the corner light.

Just make sure no one else knows that you use velcro for the eyelids, or else you might find yourself with no eyelids one day

good idea on the velcro, I now have "custom" eyelids from installing mine before the clears.
