    I bought the T-rex eyelids on eBay and I haven't had the time to paint them (cause fall semester started) but I was wondering how the guys who have them here glued them to the headlights. I know the instructions say to use 3M double sided tape, won't the tape make it look like it sticking out a little? I used the tape for the emblems cause I painted them black so I know it holds up but Im not sure how it would do in the headlights. Thanks. also, any pics would be appreciated.

    Danke

    just use 3M double sided automotive tape...to remove the eyelids you need a heat gun or blow dryer to remove em...its not an easy task to remove the eyelids without a little heat...

    btw...with the 3M tape mines don't pop out...

    Thanks guys, I still got some left over 3M tape from when I painted the emblems, I just wanted sure how well it would hug the lights. I feel more confident now.
