The lens 30 is formed to be transparent in the center so that the light of the lamp 10 can be transmitted to the outside. The lens 30 has an end portion (frame) coupled to the housing 20 so as to be opaque so that the light of the lamp 10, which has passed through the lens 30 when viewed from the outside of the automobile, And the edges have different colors. The lens 30 includes a transparent first transparent portion 32 disposed at the center and an opaque first opaque portion 34 disposed at the end of the first transparent portion 32 and coupled to the housing 20 . In this embodiment, the first opaque portion 34 is formed in black.

The first opaque portion 34 can be illuminated through the light of the lamp 10 to have a beautiful appearance and the inside of the housing 20 can be prevented from being seen from the outside so that the design of the housing 20 can be changed and partially deleted.

The lens 30 is bonded to the housing 20 by laser welding. However, the first opaque portion 34, which is a junction portion of the lens 30, can not transmit the laser beam.

The housing 20 is formed with a transparent second transparent portion 22 through which the laser beam can be transmitted and the laser beam is transmitted through the second transparent portion 22 to the first opaque portion 34).

The housing 20 is formed to be opaque in the center, and the end coupled with the first opaque portion 34 is formed to be transparent. That is, the housing 20 includes the opaque second opaque portion 24 and the transparent second transparent portion 22. In this embodiment, the second opaque portion 24 is formed in black.
