I used to love my clears but now I'm not sure, thinking about going back stock. One big reason is that the leds just aren't bright enough. I'm thinking about trying to make some custom leds to put in my clears. Anyways what do you guys think?

Making your own is time consuming to a point of annoyance, and a pain in the tush. There are some new ultrabright LEDs out, and I saw a 3 watt 1157 red bulb on ebay. It should be bright enough to do the job, but thay are not cheap.

If the choice is only these two, I like the stocks better.

Even if the choice was every other light that could possibly fit, I will still say stock.

The 91-92 lights look "ok"...but they make the back of the car look too wide/round to me...the 93-96 lights look the best, specifically with the blacked out trim and black pinstripes that are on the SS lights (and not on the Caprice lights)...slightly wider pinstripes than the stock SS pinstripes look cooler...and better reflective material inside the lights makes them look cooler too...but still start with stock 93-96 lights to make that all happen.

I think clears look better on dggm than on dcm or bbb. But sometimes I look at them on my car and I hate them. I'm going to keep the stocks I put on for now (unless I can find some 91's). I'll prolly hang on to the clears to play around with some leds or something.
