Local paint shop feedback?

I just received my eyelids from the group buy a few days ago and need to get them painted. Does anybody have any recommendations for body shops/paint shops in the Spring/Woodlands area? Both positive and negative input is welcome. I've been lucky enough to never need this kind of work before so I am clueless as to where to go.

Sorry im confused. Normally eyelids are just vinyl stickers covering the top portion of the headlight. What do you need to get painted?

Right concept, wrong material. These lids are made out of a fairly robust plastic and attach to the headlights with the 3M body tape. The plastic is black and it may not matter much with other colors, but being my car is Jet Black they would look pretty tacky if not painted.
