    Default Eyelids! Yay or Nay?

    Hello!

    I have just bought some eyelids for my veccy from the bay, but they came shiny black. After a good sand down, trip to halfrauds and a quick spray it was ultra blue! Unfortunatly when i came to fit them, they were not the same colour as the car lol So not put off by this i sprayed them matt black which i think i like.

    What do you reckon? I havent put them on yet i just lay them on the headlights, thats why they look like they dont line up lol







    PS. Sorry for the dirty car lol, the snow makes it dirty

    Your car looks the same colour as mine Ultra blue if so there's about 7 different shades mine is more metal flakey best bet would be paint shop and get them to check paint with paint cards to get the right shade

    ive used the halfrauds paint a few times and its been ok but when i used it on my spoiler it was a different shade completely, my eyebrows are a different shade as well so will have to get them repainted ,only way to get a perfect match is with a paint swatch card
