Clear corners? B13s come with clear corners stock. Unless you're talking about the bumper-mounted sidemarkers, in which case you're going to have to make your own since Nis-knacks is permantently out of stock. Check out the instructions in the December 2000 issue of SOLM .

Anyone know what bulbs go into the corner lights? I'm going to get white here soon and I need to know what bulb goes in there. I'm talkinb about the "clear" corners now! Why is it that my corners look better than my original head light lense?!...Man I hate cracked lenses. Gotta replace those too!

Is there water in your headlights, my lights have water and condensation inside. NPM did an article on how to clean the insides of them but I forgot which issue, I think it was one of the 2000 issues. With the water, my headlights look brown and my clear corners are clear ( except for the yellow bulbs inside)

I would just clean my headlights out with Blue Magic...there's a thread about it somewhere around here. But since it has a crack in it, I know it'll just happen again. I may give it a try and hope it cleans them up for a while. So on my corners, get blue and it'll make it white? I believe you but how so? Oh well, I guess I'll find out myself. And it's not so much water as it is condensation (practically same thing)...except the condensation has almost built somewhat of a film on the lense. I'll take them off in a couple weeks and find out. Thanks for the bulb number.

1157 will NOT fit in the sidemarkers. It's for the front turnsignals and taillights. 1156 fits the rear turnsignals and reverse lights. The sidemarkers are size 194 :) .

He's talking about the light blue-colored bulbs - hyperwhites. The stock bulbs are so small and so low-wattage, the "white" color turns out to be more of a yellowish. The blue tint on the hyperwhite bulbs shifts the color more toward pure white.

It's really easy. I followed the instructions in the Dec. '00 issue of SOLM - follow the link here and click on "Construct Clear Turnsignals" by Josh Vereen.

Went to Pep Boys today and saw the bulbs. It seems that the only color that the 1157 bulbs come in is a blue...at least that's all I saw. What about the headlight bulbs? Isn't it 9004 65 high watt/45 low watt? I read it somewhere on the web and pretty sure that's the right size, but not 100%. Anyone know?

LOL, sorry, I got a little mixed up. Anyway, yes the turnsignals in the front are 1157. I suppose you could make an 1156 fit in an 1157 socket, but I don't know why you would want to. The wattages are the same for the 1156 and the high-watt filament on the 1157. If you want your turnsignals to only flash, not be the constant-on marker lights too, just clip the appropriate wire.

Zexel, I believe that's correct. Your best bet is to take your bulb out and compare it to the ones on the shelf. I highly recommend the Sylvania Cool Blue line of bulbs. They're very white in color and last for a long time. I've been going well over a year on mine.

BTW, a hyperwhite bulb is very very blue in color. The way you can tell the difference between blue and hyperwhite is how dark of blue the bulb is. If the bulb is a medium-to-light blue like this, it's probably hyperwhite. If it's a dark, almost black-blue, like this, it's a blue bulb. And Pep Boys probably isn't your best bet for getting quality bulbs. Head over to the local preformance / rice store and you're more likely to find a nice bulb like Polarg, Hiper Industries, etc.

there was a thread i post earlier titled hyper blinkers. and it did say clip black wire. but its dim 1157 and turns off when signals doesnt get brighter... the corners are brownish. but urs are silver cause you hid the blue reflection.

samo - the 1157's that up at Pe Boys that I s were made by Hiper Industries. Is that a good quality? I know a place where they can special order me some if I need them to.

NisKnacks used to sell them. There is a group deal going on in the NX2000 (www.sr20deforum.com)section for clear turnsignal lenses for the NX. I think if you hold off there will be marker lights made soon. Or just check the forums for them used. They do pop up every now and then.

I'm not sure of which wire to clip - I never can keep them all straight. However, I'm pretty sure the black wire is ground, so clipping that wire sounds like a bad idea. From my testing, getting the turnsignals to be as bright as the headlights is next to impossible. I've tried every wiring combination possible - wiring in reverse, using cancellation to get them to turn off, etc. etc. and nothing worked the way I wanted. My solution? Get some city lights of the same wattage :) .

Yes, from my experience Hiper Industries is very high quality. I use their Xenon Red bulbs in my center taillight and the color is fantastic. I believe that Hiper Industries and Polarg are one in the same, and I use Polarg hyperwhites and am very happy. The color is just slightly blue and very very bright. They're excellent bulbs and look great at night. If the price is good, I would go for them.
