talking with altimat, how many people would be interested in eyelids? im playing around in photoshop to get a concept down,

what are your thoughts on a benz-type head light cover?

good chop GTWOO, but IMO i think that only certain colors would work such as black where you can't see the details between the material of the body and the eyelid.

what material are you planning to use for the eyelids? can you try to chop it going with the lines of the hood?

it would prob be some sort of clear plastic painted to body color. but im not sure would have to work out the details with mike. just working on the over all idea of it then turning it over to active tuning for production if they feel there is a decent request for them

honestly, i think the OEM housing looks really nice and it would be a shame to cover them. but there is always a huge market for 'em people who wanna be different :)

here is one on silver, just to change up the color a bit.
these are very crude pics so please excuse the roughness

I like it.. good chop, for what you have to work with.... I would tell a.t. to go for it, but not before they finish up the turn signal mirrors.. :)

not my cup of tea. At least on the alty.....if it were a 'cedes then yeah...I like the look.
where do you think the concept came from?

thought maybe it would be a nice touch with the AT l.e.d. mirror covers

true...I worded my reply wrong....I realize that its a mecedes headlamp look but imo it wouldn't enhance the look any for the alty. It isn't terrible but it just doesn't look right.

due to a sim. body shape between the GS300 and the altima, i wanted to get something along that line, but the cant get teh right look. i thougth the best way to go to achieve that look would be to join them like the benz.

I'm generally not a big fan of the eyelids but that orange one has serious potential!! I agree I think it will look better on some colours than others.

NO!!! whenever i drive by an altima, i always see the headlights shining. i did just today on the bus. eyelids are one thing, but these are too much. and dont you guys get mad when honda racers and other people steal ideas from nissan. such as gtR and s15 headlights, why try to take someone elses design?
good work on the photo chop, good job to be creative, and i admit eyelids would be cool, esp. cuz i have a black one, just keep working on the design, i understand that this is one of the first design, just keep workin
