The orange portion is the turn signal. Because the bulb is clear in the stock orange housing, you have to swap out the bulb for an amber one, which is size 3157. If you don't want an orange bulb peeking out and fucking up your brand new clear look, you need to buy a chrome bulb. If you Google search "chrome amber 3157" you should be able to find bulbs for under $10 shipped. With USPS Priority shipping, I had mine in under 4 business days from Georgia.
As soon as I have a minute I'll post the pics for my brief how-to on this install.

Jason, looks great. Really cleans it up. I think I need some. Should go well with the white stripes.
I agree on the cleaning it up part...I had no idea what a huge difference it would make in the overall look of the car. I think it's a must for you, especially since you already have clear fronts. Doing a split clear/red lens would probably look pretty good too; it'll tie in the 3rd brake light and brake lights with your turn/backup lamps. I Photoshopped both for my car and at first was going to go split, but ultimately landed on the lightly smoked look.
I didn't notice this until about a week ago, but the 2003+ cars already have clear lenses. So, if some of you are curious about what your car will look like, you can get a decent idea by looking for your color in a 2006 or 2008 coupe. For example:
I am getting just the side markers. I have a red viper gts....does anyone have pictures of the clear side markers on the red AS WELL AS red side markers on the red viper. I cant choose which. I dont know if i want it to stand out (clear) or just blend in (red) id love to see at least the clear markers on a red
EDIT: Dont worry about the picture of the clear on a red...i saw one on page 2, but does anyone happen to have a red side marker on the red viper
My car is a silver 03 SRT. The clears in the back blend in with the paint, it looks great. Just wish I could get the rear tail lights to look the same. I tried to con Klear into making a set but no go. Can't really blame them. I know someone in Europe made 5 pairs but I couldn't track them down (Star Tek?). Is there a way i could make my own?
Seriously love how these came out. Only issue I had was dropping two of the plastic rear turn signal nuts behind the panel and having to fish them out and one of the front side markers screws spun loosely in the marker so tightening it up was a fiasco.
Also their is some bleed through from the turn signal blinking into the reverse bulb area. I put some silverstar bulbs in all the spots so its white and white but when I had a orange bulb in the turn signal spot the bleed through looked kindof bad to me.
And without further adieu!

Lol i sure did and of course when i dropped them i was like he said they would fall you dummy. Pulled the breaker light and reached right in and got them. I put some rtv in the socket and it held the bolts solidly when putting then back in. Why dodge made then of plastic is beyond me...
~275shipped. Jason did take a considerable amount of time to produce these for me but the wait was certainly worth it. I did tell him no rush as the car was apart and I wasn't in dire need of them so if that played a role who knows.
I got my rear clears in easy. How do you access the front side marker lights? Do the headlights have to come out?
There is an access panel on the bottom on the outer edge of the bumper, and the ~4" rubber plug in the back of the fascia. If you open both of those and pull the wheel off you can get both arms in there so you can work. It's just 2 nuts for each side (that's what she said).
