Headlight Eyelids?

I've searched everywhere around my town (Dallas) and can't find them. What kind of shop can I get them from in person? or do I have to order them online?

Any details would be great.
Thanks

Just my personal opinion, seems kind of cheesy. Takes away the whole unique look of the Max.

Staggered - Yeah, They are Nice..The Eyelids. Only thing is the paint is starting to be worn off, so I'll just order another pair, heat up the ones on the car and remove them! - Actually, the headlights are 3M Tinted..Professionally done. I don't play around with that lol.

Wright - I got rid of my facebook. Not into the groups because people get way to jealous and really can't enjoy life. I left the groups. I have been studying for my LSATs..So I like to peep in on this forum daily..and help out and talk to people. Everyone on here is very nice and doesn't hate. I like the eyelids Wright! Good stuff!

Jarohnimo - It's a personal preference..just like everyone else does certain mods to their car/s. I personally love the eyelids..I always get looks..and people scope out my car at night..so I know i must be doing something right

Jarohnimo - Yea I actually got them and then didn't know if I wanted to put them on because I wasn't sure if I would like them. After them sitting in the garage painted and prepped for install and I said f#!& it...I bought them so I am going to get some use out of them at least for a little bit, lol. When people see them, they say they like them and it separates the head out look of mine from others around me.

When it comes the day I hit Kmoney up for some headlights they will be removed. Hopefully that will be next year, but who knows with my wedding in May, lol...

Guido - Yea I hear ya. I really don't log on there much and hardly do the chat on it. I saw your status on there one day and wondered what happened, but never dug too much into it.

Thank You..yeah the paint is wearing down..so I might just buy new ones and see where I go from there. They are a cheap, yet decent looking mod.

Let me know if you have any questions

Hmm I don't know how I feel about that pattern. It looks decent though. It pretty much looks like my car..except my eyelids are in silver and my front lip spoiler is in black with a custom silver design pattern. And the grill is diff lmao!

Good stuff though!

Looking good Staggered. I see you installed the stow and go. Comes in handy when the cop pulls you over. Happened to me, pulled it out and the cop just let me go. He looked confused I think that's one of the reason why ge let me go LMAO or I just had luck on my side.

You should def do it, coupled with your vents it would be a great look, thats what inspired me to get them done...I want to get the carbon fiber vents you have installed... I am still shook though... I look at the book mark at least twice a week...

I know... Especially in VA, I am in GA most of the time so they don't bother me, mine sticks out about a 1/4 of an inch... Were you able to get yours flush?

They are on Ebay. The link should be up above. You want a pair? I have a pair that was on my car, that I took off to get my headlights worked on and just never put them back on. They are painted silver though...

I like the covers and lids where did you get them and what do your back lights look like? I have a 2013 charcoal grey max and would love these.
