i was looking for headlight mods for my 08 focus when i came across this image of eyelid headlights on the new focus. How would you do this, paint the outer casing of the headlight or cut out a black decal and lay it over?

just do vinyl i completely disagree with taking spray paint to a new car. especially for something you may decide to change down the road.

ive seen a lot of people do them on the older foci. if you're one of those people, where did you go to get it done?

me? hell.........I could care less cause I WILL get new headlights eventually..... so basically I took a bunch of paper towel, found the line on the headlights on my 02 focus, taped it right there at the edge, and sprayed away [giggle]

I personally hate my headlights. If you can know who had the modified lights, that'd allow me to cope a lot easier with these tacky, poor projecting light cases. I don't think i really want to paint, unless i put something over the light so it wouldn't ruin the casing then use the ford paint to color match it (sounds better if someone can help with that). If i were to ever sell the car, only to buy an even newer fofo of course, that would decrease its value for someone who doesn't like the eyelids

i've decided to go down the route of buying a vinyl, and most likely will buy ford vista blue spray paint to go over it. BradWhite helped me out by finding this vinyl site that looks decent (http://www.govinyl.8k.com/vinylsheets.html).
Has anyone found a cheap(er) website for the paint? It seems like they charge a lot for just their color, but i want a good color match so i might just pay it up.

i did a little research and found that he sent another guy a message saying he got the vinyl made at a tint shop. kinda sucks my car is blue so its going to be harder to make that color matches. i just received my h9 hyper yellow fogs in the mail, so im going to mod them to fit in my h11 holders right now, ill get some eyelid progress done tonight
