EXT: Complete Amber corners w/ Reflectors 92-93 accord

This DIY is for those that don't want to spend an arm and leg for the real deal, but want something close.

when you hit up ebay, you normally get one of these, i got these for $15 at amazon, cheap!

the problem with these is you get what you paid for, cheap crap, now lets take crap and turn it to GOLD!

What you need:
-Ebay/amazon Amber corners
-Oem stock corners from your 92-93 accord
-Flat head screw driver
-any waterproof clear sealant


Step one:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees

Step two:
Place corners in oven one at a time, place it on some kind of silicone mat or tray if you have one, i have some silicone oven mitts that worked great, it doesn't transfer the heat and lets it heat evenly.
leave in for 2 min, then pull out

Step three:
use flat head screw driver to pry the lenses off, take your time and be slow, if you have to, get part of the lens apart and put back into oven for 1 min and repeat as many times as is needed to take apart with out breaking the lenses.


Step Four:
once all lenses are off the ebay corners and the stock ones, take the amber lenses and put onto the Stock housings with some clear sealant and let dry.
you'll notice the reflectors are a sepreate lens thats inside the corners, and now they look like this


one done, one to go


all done, now put on car and enjoy your complete not fake looking corners

cept you had to paint yours which makes them look like crap and fade over time. this is already amber which makes it nice.

good idea, i should do these to my stock set since they're all yellowed out from my failed diy ambering lol.

i wonder how these would work with jdm coupe corners.

there is really no silicone glue that holds them on, its more like a super glue, the heat in the oven allows it to pop off easier, when you put it back on, i used loctite stick&seal waterproof glue, takes a bit to cure, but i have yet to have it fog the inside since we've had all this rain and fog.

i'm sure it would work just fine, i wasn't aware there was a difference
but the concept should be the same

i have amber corners on the way from amazon. If they dont bring the reflector im defenetly doing this before they go in the car. Ambers without reflectors are ghey.
