Where can I find smoked clear corners for my 89? Anyone know? Are they EDM?

Good luck finding these. I've never seen any before. Sounds like custom work to me.

ok your question is rather confusing...... SMOKED means blacked out...then you said CLEAR...which is obviously clear.....


anywho... go down to your nearest model car/airplane shop and look for stuff called NiteShades (might actually be able to find it at your nearest car store idk) but take your stock lights out, sand them down with some 120 grit sand paper or even scotch pads work.... just enough to scuff them up..... then take the lights and do even coats all the way across them.... i would put atleast 3 coats..... then i would grab some clear coat paint (can pick up off your walmart shelf for less then a buck!) and put on atleast another 2-3 coats (depending on how glossy you want) give them plenty of time between coats if not you will run into the clearcoat "running".... let them cure for atleast 2 days (if you can give them a little bit longer just incase) and then reinstall.....walla

You can get the Niteshades at O'Reiley's Auto parts as well. If they don't have it, they can order it.

You mean the ones I've got? (See attachment.) One of mine is broken, if I had two good ones I'd swap you them for two amber ones. :P

Yep, they're stock EDM. I could try to find you a good set, then maybe we could swap? Unless you want darker ones.

(Btw, I live in The Netherlands, Europe.)

Here's another pic:

they have different shades of darkness? I'm definitely down to do a straight swap. My amber ones are practically mint condition!

Just one shade, the one you can see in my photos. A swap would be great. I'll start looking for a new set of EDM corners today and you'll hear from me as soon as I find them, I should be able to get them at the local Honda dealer..

Speak to you soon mate.
