Eyelids that don't fit?

I have just recently bought a pair of eyelids for my 03 GTS, and when getting them and trying to put them on the headlights, we realized that that don't really fit, has anyone had this problem before, or no the best way to fix it?

i got vinyl overlays from bluebatmobile and they didn't really fit the best either, had to use a box cutter, and a hairdryer to kind of melt it to fit, but looks good now thumbsup took me about 1.5 hours to do it htough with a friends help. just take your time and it should turn out ok

I got mine from ProCarParts, they were a little hard to make fit, but we got it done. I took them off recently & am buying the Smoked Vinyl overlays from BlueBatmobile as well. thumbsup
