Just asking for some input.

First I need to redo my ‘eyelids’ they are fading and starting to look bad, any suggestions on a style. Right now just the excess and amber portions are covered up, by excess I mean the little bit that comes up between the fender and the hood. I was thinking following the top of the top bar on the grill (the top little divider in the headlight) and extending it all the way across the lights and keeping the amber in the dark. Here is a picture to help.
Disclaimer; I do not have a camera so I had to find some internet images.





also i can't get my ms paint doodles that showed what i have now posted but you get the idea.







Secondly I want to get responder lights for the car, and I don’t want to show them off for everybody to see when I’m not actually going to a call. So ninja responder lights as I like to refer to them. (Yes I know the laws in regards to responder lights) and I have a magnetic osculating one that I can put up top like a 70’s cop car chase. But I was wondering if anyone out there had any suggestion on where to place / purchase lights from. Also I need a siren, some people said check out

http://www.responderpse.com/

But when I did a search it looked like somebody had just went to Google and clicked ‘I’m feeling lucky’. But I was thinking on either side of the front logo something that fits in the back. I don’t absolutely need them but they sure would come in handy with all the people who consider 35 mph driving crazy and get mad when you go to pass them (not just when responding, but all the time, even when the road is straight and there is no one in the oncoming lane, and the sun is out and no wind or anything and you have been following them for 9 miles , yeah you know what I’m talking about) but any help would be greatly appreciated and please if you just want to bash me for wanting responder lights don’t I was just looking for ideas.

Put them in the grill. When I was police I had an undercover Vic with a low-profile light package (grill, head and taillights, dash, under bumper) and the grill ones were definitely the most noticeable.

EDIT: as for the headlights, I've never been a fan of any type of eyelids, but that's just my opinion.

Eyelids, most dont like them, but I do. I think Ford went a little overboard with the chrome headlights.

For your responder lights, I would say.....either side of the ford emblem but pushed as far out as possible. Or behind the web area below the ford emblem in that weird area under the headlights. You would have to cut out the solid parts of the webbing but it would definitely be hard to see.
