I can't decide if I like it or not. My eyelids need redoing, so that's getting done regardless. But I aquired some headlight tint vinyl from another member, but I can't decide if it should stay or go. Thoughts?

I think the tinted headlights look sharp. How is it driving at night with that?

I haven't done the other side yet, since I can't decide if I like it or not. Plus I have HID's, so i'm not too worried about it. Laughing

I like it, looks professional, clean, and sharp. I'd say keep it.

I like the tint, how did you do it?

not sure how I feel about the eyelids, I think it might be the gap between the hood and fender that makes the eyelids look a little off.

I'm with xnick...the gap kills the lids I think, but that tint looks sharp. Is that the precut film stuff from ebay? Keep us posted on the light output.

Yes,.. it's the cheap ebay, precut film. Not very form fitting, but it's workable. Laughing

I've had the eyelids for years now. They have been painted, but this time I am covering them with silver vinyl to see if they last a bit longer. We'll see what happens.
(I'm actually kinda suprised nobody mentioned the pink bike in the corner yet.)

I kinda like the tint. I guess both need to be done to really see what it looks like.

I like it, but at the same time I don't. Eyelids just aren't my thing.

Well, you are blocking it with the power washer...so it evens out the man points from -3 to +1. Laughing

Tint = WIN
Eyelids = Sad

I'll be doing my headlights the same as soon as I get a chance. That's the same stuff I used for my fogs! Really makes the car look mean from the front.

I've never been a fan of the eyelids myself, however I typically don't like them in general on any car. As far as tint, looks good, but I'm just not a fan of tinting headlights because of the effect it may have on night visibility. Guess it would be okay with HID's, but still. I'd just assume have the headlight covers that you can just pop off when you want.
