That will obviously stay.

Thanks guys on the rest of the car!

Let me know how the fitment is, I believe you're the first to completely use their way!

When I remove those eyelids the clips from my angel eyes stick out like a sore thumb and it looks bad because of my black out housings. With the eyelids it covers that up. That's why I have them. I like these eyelids because they aren't like those ugly curvy ones you see a lot.

Alrighty. I drilled the holes in the doors and made the proper adjustments.

Now I want to know how I should get them painted...

Should I paint the bases black and the cover red or everything red?

Well... They look fantastic! I'll upload photos tomorrow. The only thing bothering me is that the passenger side mirror motor is kaput. I ordered new euro glass and can't wait to put them on this week. Won't be plugging in the heat with the new lenses in the warm months.
