Thumbs down Damn eBay!!!

Well I have had quite a few great experiences buying stuff on eBay.... until today. I bought some "eyelids" for my headlights on Dec 9th. Long story short, after numerous fruitless email attempts to get shipping info, I file a complaint and get my money back. Ironically on the day my stuff ships out (4 weeks after the auction) the seller emails me and says the stuff has shipped but ebay already reversed the transaction so can I please send his money cause "this is how I support my family". Well you should've answered your freakin emails!! Anyway, this is what I got today. These are supposed to be "custom cut from the factory". Sadly, I still have faith in eBay for being a good place to buy good stuff.

Thanks, I believe they are made of vinyl though. Yeah I have no idea what the "factory" was using for dimensions but it sure as heck wasn't an '04 Focus headlight! Does anybody know where you can actually get a good quality pair of these?

could those possibly be for an 05 or newer. mines an 02 but i thought they went to a different style in the newer models.
