question about eye lids
i was wondering...i wanted to get eye lids for my cars, but had a few questions and concerns.
1. the TRD eye lids are pricey
2. bats overlays look the same
my question is, do they give same effect and look. i mean they do from internet sites i was wondering about in person if they look and gave same effect as regular TRD eyelids, and i know that bluebats overlays are prolly wayyy cheaped...

TRD eyelids aren't too expensive...about $160 or so.

andy's vinyl overlays are a cost-conscience way of modding your car to get a similar look.

however, the TRD eyelids are obviously better, more durable and therefore will last longer (vinyl lasts about 7-9 years while Fiberglass eyelids are lifetime--however, most people do not keep their cars 7-9 years anyway)

if you can afford it and you really want them: get the TRD eyelids.

my advice (coming from someone who is not a fan of eyelids): buy andy's overlays and use the money you would save elsewhere thumbsup

if you don't mind spending a little extra, get the TRD eyelids - they're worth it

My Overlays are a great Alternative to the real deal. If you wanna save a lot of $$, you might want to consider my Overlays. The money you save can be used for Performance Mods thumbsup
