Here is a tip to make the aftermarket ones look much more professional and high end.
Tape a thin black mask line for each section of red and clear so it matches the factory ones and gives the lights some depth.

I like your lights! I've had mine for several months. It's a clean look. Enjoy

Interesting idea...so just run a black strip of tape over the silver part that separates each part of the lens?

I'd rather get some vinyl strips rather than just some black tape... unless you can find some tape that doesn't look too......"tapey"

should look good though

LOL
You guys are funny and i am stupid for not explaining it better.
I meant to mask off the area with tape and spray paint it gloss black to define the separations .
Using tape instead would make them look even more cheap.
