    Does anyone know if they make eyelids for the 2001-2004 toyota tacoma, I've looked everywhere but cant find them, I ended up making my own from carbon fiber vinyl I ordered on ebay

    Yeah that eyelid thing goes good on 2nd gens because their headlights are huge. You got a pic of yours? Would be nice to see what you did.

    I wondered about it and did a mock up with tape, but it had to be very skinny or it would be blocking light

    Thanks man, I think I'm gonna do them over, but this time I want them to come down a little lower and more at an angle so it looks mean!
