    No, because it's not a popular 'mod' with these car's stock lights. Something done more in the civic/maxima/etc market though. But those markers are not generally encased inside the head light with as much work to remove. Too bad the mold didn't work.

    I said that in reference to pre made aftermarket housings not the DIY mod
    But it does suck that he couldn't get the mold to work(I would have got a set for my truck if I had the guts to open my 700 dollar housings(03 with factory hid))

    Have you considered getting some color matched paint and spraying over the side markers? It can even be done thin enough to mask the amber color, but not completely block the light from showing through.
