    Might be awhile. Toyotaman is taking a leave of absence from this project. Check out the update to his first post.

    I'm pretty sure you can buy them off ebay though and color match them yourself.

    I might have to do that, my truck is black so I don't think color matching would be a problem.

    Hardly. They are held in place with the same strength adhesive as the emblems on your truck. They aren't going anywhere. :cool:

    Ok, so I have found a set on ebay for what seems to be a decent price but I have a question for those of you who already have these installed... They look great but how do they affect the visibility of the DTRL & the headlights (Stock and Projector kit)? Thanks in advance!

    I have a return on a set of 05-11 sleeper eyelids painted Super White 040. Customeer said they didn't fit his headlights perfectly. I have inspected them and set them against several other lights and can't find anything wrong with them.

    They are ready to go. This is the last set I am going to make. I am not going to be producing anymore eyelids.

    If you want a set of sleepers in super white for your 05 thru 11 truck here is your chance.

    $95 shipped. SOLD AS IS

    Payment sent for above eye lids! Will post pics of truck once I put them on! Just another piece of the puzzle! Also bought 2 cans of plasti-dip for the lower valence. Still need black mirrors, an oem roof rack, cbi front hitch, and 5 lug front bumper, fenders and bedsides. Then I should be done for a while. Almost forgot satoshi!

    The comment I am getting after the install from those who are not tacoma enthusiasts (Is that right?) is that they didn't notice them. Something was different but they didn't SEE it. I think that speaks to the quality of the product and particularly the paint match! My truck looks better with these eyelids! I love 'em! My compliments to the chef!..er

    Sorry, guys I am not going to be making anymore of these items. The cost of the blank lids went up again. It just isn't cost effective anymore to sell them, that and I had alot members here flake out on me which was even more cost prohibitive.

    I know that there is a source for blank lids on ebay. If you all want to buy them and have me paint them to match I might be able to work something out for everybody.

    Sine you aren't making anymore is there anyway we could buy the blank lids by contacting whoever you purchased them from and worry about having them painted elsewhere?

    EDIT: nevermind i just seen where you linked to ebay 2 posts above this, sorry.
