Anyone try making or installing Eyebrows yet?

I've seen people paint that exact same portion black, but I've never heard of an eyebrow decal/laminate being created.

I also know there was another thread where someone was supposed to take some measurements to mass-produce eyebrows, but I don't think anything ever came of it.

Lined up just right and with the side marker tinted would look good. Kill the chrome on the grill, too.

Take Your headlight off and tape off whatever You don't want painted. Prep as one would before paint, then primer paint and clear, if desired(drying between steps, says Capt. Obvious). 2-3 light coats should be plenty, plus it'll make it easier to sand off, should the need arise. Serve and enjoy![thumb]

PM ZX360, he does vinyl and would be glad to help. I think he makes 08-11 eyelids too.

wow you guys are quick, let me try to answer them in order.
I do not want to paint the outside, going with vinyl.
I plan to mono chrome the headlights and grill (like the fusion) white or maybe silver just to be different.
My wheels are ATS DTC comp superlight, I tried to sell them for 5-6 weeks and no one came through with a good offer so I am keeping them forever. They are made in Germany by ATS's racing division, they are the spec wheel for the Danish Touring Car series in Europe! and there expensive as hell!
I also plan to cut out the bars on the inside of the lights when I paint the inside, just dont have the time or "cough" balls to do it right now. I just think black is over done right now and want to keep the car as clean as possible.
Did I forget anyone?

Just looked, the whole headlight is tinted except for the ring in the middle where the reflector is. I used a light (30%) so it is kind of hard to see, but not in person, you can tell.
I WILL MAKE TEMPLATES FOR EVERYONE when its done, hell I'll sell ready to go cutout vinyl too if you all want them!

look again...he also offers your model too
Can you click on the link you posted and look for yourself? I've just scrolled through the entire list three times and only see 2000-2004 and 2005-2007. You sure you're thinking eyelids and not hood/sidestripes/emblem decals?
