What does everyone think of eyelids? I'm thinking about doing them when I get my body kit (C-West N1) installed.

The shape of the eyelid is a major deciding factor. I have seen some good ones and some ugly ones.

What about the Chargespeed eyelids? I liked those the best. I thought the others were too thin.

Eyelids look pretty cool if you have a CF hood, IMHO. They help to kind of provide a "frame of paint" around the edge of the hood, a nice contrasting border... Looks better on lighter colors like SSM...

Out of the four types available from club rsx, I'd say the Initial-D ones look the best...

EDIT: Initial-D's are INGS Replicas...

Personally, I'm not a fan, but everybody likes different things, so do what you think looks good. If you're going to paint them , it's going to be expensive unless you have something else for the shop to paint at the same time.

Personally I liked the INGs replica eyelids better than the Chargespeed set. You dont want them to be too thick. I know some people who have used color matched vinyl and made their own custom eyelids. That could be an idea for you.

Yea, Ive seen those in the past. Anyone know who sells those custom vinyl eyelids?
I'm pretty sure there was a member of this board that sold some custom vinyl eyelids. Thought he had a couple different designs (could be wrong). I'll see if I can conjure up his name somewhere.

I think there was this one guy with a celica, named Bat? But i havent seen him post on here lately. I dont know how i would cut the shape myself. If someone has a DIY that would be helpful.

Yeah that sounds familiar. I think that was him. If you do a search for his screen name, you might be able to find an E-mail address for him.

The vinyl looks cheap and crappy. It has no thinkness/texture to it compared to the fiberglass/urethane/cf eyelids. I say get the real eyelids (all of them - C-West, Ings, CS2 - except for Roja's look good).
