yeah man, if I had a spot to put corners, I would like go with the clear ones. I did however, find a nice set of triangle sidemarkers from a truck stop that I am going to cut into my OEM fenders. First I need to fix the damage to my passenger fender or just get one from the junkyard. When I start on that I'll post pics, the only problem is these lights might not be the same size as the euro ones so I don't know if I'll be able to change them out for clears.

Not exactly euro's, but at a lot of truckstops you can find a huge assortment of lighting. I'll get pics up later of what I bought.

So the ignition cylinder locked up on my car today. Apparently after reading through some of the threads on this, it is a common problem on the 1st gen's. The Ford dealership in my town will replace it for $200. If you want it fixed cheaper you can buy this: RockAuto.com -- Part # - SW6285 -- $76.79 and fix it yourself. Or if you want it cheaper than that and if you have roadside assistance on your policy, you can have a locksmith do it(the locksmith that I am using is charging me $95) and have you insurance reimburse you.

So I am having it fixed for free, the best part is that I don't have to wait to get the rockauto part in the mail.
