I'm not spending no $100 for an install and paint when i could easily install them myself for like $5 on paint and a good 45-hr install...

If you have a simple color, like black, it should be easy, however, if you have a metallic color, it would be harder.

Get factory touch-up paint for your color, thin it out with a little reducer, and spray it on using an airbrush. Don't forget the clearcoat.

Or, just take the eyelids to a body shop, have them spray them in the same color of your factory coat, shouldn't cost you much of anything to do this, $30-$40 tops, that's with clearcoat. When they're painted, install them yourself with 3M tape. If they charge you $100 to spray two little pieces of plastic, they are screwing you.

I think that paying $200 for pre-painted eyelids is insane! that's just my opinion.

Honestly, I don't know why you guys pay so much money for your mods, Whatever happened to budget build-ups?

I have a hook-up at the Toyota Bodyshop here in Florida, the guy gives me the paint for my car in barrels for like $10 a gallon, then I just airbrush it on, and it looks professional, then you can't forget like 1-3 coats of clearcoat, don't want anything eating away at your investment.

what about getting some of the touch up paint and using an air brush like someone else suggested. That's gotta be cheaper than $100!
