I don't think so either...if anything i'd say paint your headlights...don't doubt yourself...i bet you would do a fine job...plus it's a $3 mod.

what's the difference I though the headlights were the same shape, just what's inside the headlight was different along with the hid kit of course.

eyelids are nice (pm se168us for his TRD replicas for $75 shipped).

another option is just adding the tint from batman and that'd look stunning also.

get the bat overlay that covers the whole headlight, leaving the low beam, high beam and turn signal only...that would look very hot on your car...and its cheap, then you could paint your headlights too, very black for your very black celica!

honestly i would have ordered a smoke kit from bat a long time ago but i'm afraid i'll mess it up and be out $30 or so.

and bat, how come the pic on your site of the eyelid overlay only covers half of the headlight?

i told them i need them by wednesday. i know he's in cali and i'm in ky. do you think he can make that happen?

reason i ask for fast shipping is because i'm having knee surgery wednesday and i'll be off my feet for about 2 weeks before i can even get on crutches. i'd like to get them on and take a few pics, so i can enjoy them and post them on the net while i'm recovering. because i'm gonna be in a lot of pain and bored, lol.
