What's up fellas

Anyone have eyelids on their ride ? I think I saw a pair on that Pewter car from Hawaii ? I would luv to see them on black, I luv the look and would be very interested in buying them ? Active Tuning ? LOL They don't look like they would take that long to produce, I'm not sure. Any info yet ? Thanks

I agree, too many cosmetic mods make your car look cheap

i saw some on a white altima at a local illegal car show. lets just say they looked like shit!!! I think it's cuz they were a little too big, or maybe cuz it was white. I dunno, whatever it was, his car looked so cheap and shitty, also his ride was a stock 2.5. Only mod was eyelids, lol.

Try using color matched paint. You can make them as big or small or slanted or upper and lower, or whatever.

i have the custom color matched vinyl, which was what i was going to use to make my eyelids, but the way our lights are curved make it impossible to get it perfect without a crease. trust me i didn't plan to paint it, ever, it's just that when i discovered the vinyl idea wasn't happening, it was the quickest thing i could come up with. my next look will be much different trust me, just wait a couple week till i actually have time to do it.

That is a nice look that car has with the Infinity grill and looks like the lights are cleared as well.

I used plain old masking and car paint for the eyelids, thats it. If you do too little, it wont get noticed, if you do too much it will look unnatural. Everyone has their own take on how low and slanted they should be. Good Luck!
