    So I ordered some Eyelids and after seeing the pics I'm kinda torn between either painting them white to match the truck as others have or hit with a coat of black. what do you guys think?

    You have the smoked lights right? The flat black might be too dark. And the white lids would probably flow nice with the color matched grille.
    You could ask in the photoshop request thread someone would probably be able to do that pretty easily for you.

    Good choice. Yeah before I painted mine they were a dark gray color and I put them up to the headlight to test fit them and they didnt even stand out. But then again I had the BHLM's so maybe thats why. But yeah, def paint them white though,;)

    thanks everyone. I guess that was the obvious answer, but needed that determining factor.

    You have to purchase the eyelids. I got mine off of ebay from a guy who makes them out of fiberglass. no real effort to it except the painting part.

    Thanks Jerez, Nice rig you got yourself too. Yeah, I decided that i'm gonna paint them color matched. Just ordered the paint, so I should have them on in about a week. since, they come in with the black gel coat, i just laid them on top of the light and noticed what everyone was talking about not being able to see them as much.

    Not much......college student using the GI Bill to survive.
    Where you order the paint from? Post pics after you paint the lids. I'm thinking about getting some too.
