Year/chassis code would be helpful information to give people when asking for advice. I'd try searching as it's been touched on previously.

UGC to the rescue :lol:

I did the corners on my SF. Quite easy. Same procedure as the ones from a GC, so search on rs25.com or scoobymods to find the DIY tutorial. One difference is that ours have 1 or 2 tiny Philips screws that you have to remove first before pulling them apart. Just make sure to put back some glue/urethane when putting them back together also. I didn't, and one collect humidity because it's not sealed right. As for the headlights, I'M planning on doing them this spring. I'M trying to source a used set to do it, jsut in case something break.
the link up is also very good (with my car dirty like usual!) to see the final product, as my fotki:
Black corners album | Math | Fotki.com
Try to use either matte black of satin (mine were in satin black, Krylon Fusion paint), not gloss black.
Don't hesitate to ask questions!

the first time I used a heat gun, but the heat transfer was not good and I ended up "bending" one plastic glass. The second on was baked in the oven. Like i said, find the DIY for the GC ones (either on northursulia or scoobymods). But don't forget to remove the tiny screws first!
