FS: Orient Blue Hamann style eyelids...

I've got a pair of hamann style eyelids that I've had for a while...They're painted a black/blue color...i think it's oriental blue or something...but I've got a TiAg sedan and I don't think I'll ever find time to paint it (plus I hear it's hard to match the silver exactly), so I'm willing to sell them...Preferably looking for someone local, but I'm willing to ship as well...I'm located in Philly (obviously)...I'm open to all offers, but usually they get sold for around $30...

Sorry I was away on vacation for a while...but here are the pics I promised...

Here are two showing the overall shape of the eyelids on the car...they do match the shape of the headlights perfectly, but I didn't have any tape to secure them on while taking pics.



Some distance pics that show the Orient Blue paint...notice how it contrasts with the black unpainted plastic of the back of the eyelid...they are in fine condition...



Some close-up shots that really show off the paint job...they are def Orient Blue...they have the same gleam/glossy shine as OEM...not faded or flat...





I am looking for around 30 bucks OBO...so make offers...

How are they supposed to attach? Looks like someone used a foam adhesive strip before but they tried to take it off and now it looks like bubble gum.

I'd really like to see some pics with angel eyes.

30 shipped to Dallas?

Never mind I decided that I like the kaimei (sp?) style better. I also got excited b/c I never see OB colored stuff for sale.

hmm...I actually dunno how I could confirm that they are Orient Blue...I guess I could visit a dealership and compare it to an Orient Blue car if they have one...I'll have to see.

I don't think it's orient blue. I think it's Carbon Black Metallic. The carbon black metallic has that dark blue tint at different sunlight.

Anyways, good luck with the sell!!!
