My $3 Tacoma eyelids (soon to be for sale)

Today I went to the local vinyl store and got some black vinyl. I could have got 3 yards of 24 inch black vinyl for 30 bucks. or 10 yards or 50$. i got about 2 feet and I can make 4 eyelids. I simply took a piece of paper. taped it on to my light and cut it out to what i liked. I then put it on my sheet of vinyl and cut it out. It was simple. The only hard part was putting it on witch i really screwed up. Its extremely hard to put on. I am so glad i didnt spend $45 on ebay and try to put them on my self. These on cost me $3 to make. I got the piece of vinyl for free because they let me take it from the scrap bin and i had to buy a 3$ exacto knife to properly cut it.
They look great from a far but up front you can see the air bubbles. I think i am going to start selling them on ebay for $25 a set and the black is perfect match for the black on my tacoma.

I have gone to the car wash and they do not peal and its also -30 and they are staying on perfect..

There is a guy down here that owns a logo store is going ot cut them with his machine for perfect cut. I will let you know when they go on ebay. I am going to try and match the red tacoma and blue as well.

Heres a picture of mine.

I can probably do white. black. blue and red, I will find out asap. white and black are the easiest because they dont got to be perfect as long as they are gloss. I will let you guys know more tomorroe on the progress when i got down and deal with the guy down there. Im HOPING they will be 25$ but may be 30 but still a good deal because you wont need to paint them.

I am not hating but anyone can go to a window tint shop that does stickers and do it them selfs or am I wrong! You could do this for 15 bucks T-Rex #2 color match is the way to go IMO!

yes thats true. people can go to wal mart and buy 10 hamburgers for 8$ and cook and have 8 burgers but they STILL go to a resturaunt and pay 12$ for a shitty burger and a pop. People are lazy. They would rather spend the 10 bucks more and get some pre cut and color matched ready to go and not have to worry and try to explain the the tint shop what they want and how.

know what im sayin.

Good idea. Hope it works out for you. Always support those business minded people who are do-ers.

How do they look with the headlights on? Is the vinyl thick enough to completely block the light along the top or do they "glow" a little bit?
