350Z owners favor the look of the clear corner headlamp assemblies.
To save money, some have converted the stock amber-corner
US headlamp assemblies, which requires melting the sealant
that holds the assemblies together, removing the amber diffusers,
then resealing the units. The results, many agree, look a
bit amateurish. The turn signal reflector and bulb are exposed,
and the assembly looks unfinished.
as long as owners have been doing the clear-corner conversion,
people have been looking for a reasonably-priced set of clear
lenses to replace the amber plastic lenses that cover the
exposed reflectors and bulbs. Also, there is a risk that improper
reassembly of the lamps will permit moisture to condense inside,
ruining their appearance.
the help of several other 350Z owners, Rick’s can finally
offer an inexpensive solution. We are now offering clear or
smoked diffusers for the US lamp assemblies (diffuser
installation instructions). Our diffusers have the same
pattern as the stock amber diffusers and fit the lamp assembly
perfectly. The diffusers are offered in two colors clear or
pair of our diffusers in either color, ready to install, is
just $55 + shipping.
those who don't want to take the trouble and risk of taking
apart the headlamp assemblies themselves, Rick's is also offering
a special conversion option. For only $200 (including the
cost of the diffusers), your stock amber-corner headlamp assembly
can be converted to clear corners by an experienced Headlight
Clearing Specialist. This requires that you remove the assemblies
and ship them to our Headlight Clearing Specialist, where
the conversion will be done within in about 48 hours and the
assemblies shipped back to you. Since you will be paying for
shipping both directions, you can select who the carrier is
(UPS, FedEx, etc..) and what the speed and cost will be. The
lamps are guaranteed to be free of defects and leaks for three
months. Any defects in the conversion will be repaired free

as part of the clearing process and can only get and/or cause
damage during shipping.
