    I finally got around to getting some eyelids for my truck, I've got a super white acces cab. My question is what paint did you guys who have the super white use? I tried the duplicolor from advanced auto parts and it doesn't match good at all. Anyone have any suggestions? Its driving me nut! Thanks

    Thanks I'm gonna have to order some paint from that guy. I got the eyelids off of eBay, they are just the trex angry eyelids. I think the cost was right around $50 shipped, the guy handmakes all of the eyelids he sells and they're great. Thanks for the paint advice.

    Doing the same thing on a superwhite. I got my paint from paintscratch.com. I'll let you know how it turns out. I'm painting the grille surround also so it has to match.

    Quick update, one of my dads friends does professional body work and I talked to him and he said he'd paint them for $20.

    Can't beat that! They should be done by the weekend or early next week I hope and I'll post some pics up and see what ya'll think.
