haha well I guess this weekend I'll go to home depot to see those "shelf liners" but I get the vinyl material so my project costs me nothing but time. And thank you for the enlarged picture. I'll be sure to have part two and part three of this project done this weekend. But if all goes as planned and it looks nice with the vinyl material, then if enough people like it I should be able to have them made for us here :P

Today, instead of partying, i decided to use my brothers left over matte black vinyls from his two-tone project to create a pair of "eyelids" for my car.
I spent all today drawing it up and on my knees cutting it out, so hopefully you all like it.

Below are pictures taken today. If enough of you like it, maybe I'll be able to get them made for sale!

(by the way, vinyl material made possible by bluebatmobile.net)

you're really trying to sell these huh? lol it's a nice start but i don't like them at all, it basically looks like you put a strip of electrical tape on the headlights. try making them look like the ones on the AW 1

I'd like to see that myself, I know someone else was going to try it.

The problem is that the OEM application of the above is on the inside of the light on the 3, 5, 7 Series, etc. If someone could figure out how to get the lens apart I think that would be a good option!

Update on the eyelids!
Please disregard that the photo looks like crap and that its painters tape. Please look at the angle of the curve of the painters tape and tell me how you all feel i should adjust it to match the photoshop white 1 series posted in this thread. Thank you!

It looks like you have it tapering up to the edge of the hood where the fender gap is. In the PS it looks like it tapers up much sooner than the fender/hood gap.
