Default Saved my '06 corners???

After ruining 2 sets of '06 corners trying to "mod" them (long, expensive story), I think I was able to save them today using some Niteshades and a bunch of polishing. I think they came out alright; maybe a little dark-I might pull them and wet sand and polish them a bit more to try and lighten them up.
Let me know what you think--certainly not as nice as the "real" corner mod.
Thanks

That's exactly how I did mine. Except I cooked them apart and painted the insides, leaving the reflector orange.

I don't recommend doing them the EXACT way that I did mine--EPIC FAILURE.
Baked the first set, cracked the lens on both of them taking them off, but the housings were fine. Ordered a second set from ebay. Used a Dremel and cut and trimmed the housings until I could get the lens' out without breaking them: worked great, just really messy. Then I f-ed up the new lens' getting the adhesive off of them-I got most of it off, then used GooGone to clean up the residue and it discolored the inside of the lens! Niteshade was a last-ditch effort to try to save them-if it didn't work, I was only going to be out another $8 (got it on sale at Advanced online + 20% off coupon), and I'd just leave my other ones on the truck. I'm pretty happy with them now that they're a little lighter.

No, you're right-I taped over the orange reflector, and and Niteshaded the outside of the lens--the inside of the housing is actually painted siver-tho I might go back to black.
