Modifying front 'orange' repeaters to 'clear'

hello

I recently modified the front orange repeaters by removing the orange filter inside, changing them to 'clear'. I think it makes the front of the car look much nicer.

*these are the original front side repeaters on my car with their orange filters inside the housings

*the original R side repeater housing, removed from the car

*this is the risky step! the clear lens is glued to the main black housing; using a small (4mm) flatblade screwdriver, gently 'crack' the join around the edge by levering the screwdriver into the gap; BE CAREFUL not to use too much force because the lens plastic is brittle and is easily cracked on the front; the edges will end up quite rough, but this is no consequence; you can use a utility knife to clean the edges slightly

*with the clear lens removed, you can remove the internal orange filter that is clipped into place; mine were already loose and rattling inside; clean away any debris inside the housing

*resecure the clear lens after discarding the orange filter; i would suggest a combination of superglue and silicone; my results are fairly rough, but the sides of the housing are hidden from view once refitted to the car

*here are my new globes; the original H21W BAY9S globe is on the left; the new orange-tinted globes are a BA9S fitment, meaning the pins are orientated slightly differently; the middle globe is an experiment: i have sprayed one half of the glass with silver paint to further mask its presence inside the housing

*end-on, you can compare the 3 globes; on the L is the original BAY9S bayonet fitment, with pins at 12 and 4 o'clock; on the R is the new BA9S orange globe, with pins at 12 and 6 o'clock; in the middle i have simply filed away one pin, allowing fitment into the car's holder

*this is a comparative shot; the new modified 'clear' repeater is on the R side (L of photo), and original 'orange' one on the L side of the car (R of photo)

*now here's the completed project with 2 new clear repeaters

*using 21W globes, they will flash as brightly as the originals
