Hey guys I have been thinking and Id like to get a set of the clear corner lenses for my pewter SS. Where is everyone buying theres? I want ones that are a clear lense with the chrome inside.

Ebay would be the cheapest place to find them probably. I bought mine from afterthoughts auto many years back.

Get the ones from the seller neondials. There are basically 2 types on ebay - cheap crap that leaks and melts and warps (75% of the ones on there) and then the ones that neondials has (a couple others might too) that are better quality and don't melt and warp and don't leak near as often.
I've had two sets from them and they were OK. I had a set of the other type and they leaked from day one and melted and blew bulbs after only a couple months.

Ok thanks alot guys. I want the clear style ones, not the frosted looking ones so I'll check out eBay and see what is on there.

^ I had those ones. Hated them. The housing is black so you can't see any light at all. They also leaked, fogged up, and then melted haha.
^ I bought those next, sealed the edges with some clear sealant from Auto Zone. Then smoked em. I also wrapped the edges of the bulb sockets with some random automotive putty that i found laying around which never gets hard so i can pull it off when i need to. This kept water from getting in to the socket. They have been on there since September and haven't had any issues.
Here's the only picture I have where you can see a tiny bit of the clear corners.
