ebay is actually not a bad place to find sidemarkers... although half of them have a clear lens but with black backings so they appear blacked out. So mine are actually clear (you can see an example in my album.) If you go clear, buy yellow bulbs for them.

anything from 00-07 will fit, or just black yours out yourself. They can be a little tricky to install/remove the old ones though.
