EXT: "T" square Eyelids

Items needed:
headlight covers (duh) *mine were gts headlight covers*
dremel or rotary tool
sand paper
masking tape
double sided tape to mount onto theheadlights *i didn't do this because the hood will hold the eyelids down*
paint if wanting to color match to car
steady hand
time

Step one:
fit the headlight covers on the headlights and line up the hood line with the covers, and the lines on the headlights. and apply masking tape to make straight line to cut on.




Step two:
after measurments are done, slowly cut using a dremel, along the masking tape, test fit.





Step three:
after cutting on the line of masking tape, carefully go over rough edges with the dremel or sandpaper, test fit again.


Step four:
remove the masking tape and fit the eyelids use double sided tape if needed, close hood and admire your new "t" square eyelids



if anyone is uncomfortable doing this themselves i may be able to do it for a small fee.. of course sending me your headlight covers, i'll cut them and send them back to you.

Oh my bad, I thought you meant they came from a corolla gts or something. I was like "Damn, I'm surprised they fit so well!"

Durp.

Looks good though. Is there a better way to secure them so they won't rattle off?

i don't think they are gonna rattle off anytime soon as the hood pushes down on them.. but like i said in the diy you can use double sided tape.
