the damn eyelids didnt come with any double sided tape so i went out and bought some Heavy Duty 3M Scotch Clear Mounting Tape...

i installed it and they felt like they were able to be ripped off...
so im worried about someone stealing them...
then when i closed the hood...(i was doing some other work on the engine) the hood went down...and chipped it :whine: :pissed:

so what did u guys (with eyelids) use to mount it?

ill have pics up by friday if possible...

what I did with my toms was too put heavy duty 3m all over it. Mine almost came off, what you should do is open your hood and place ducktape on the headlight, and it doesnt move or anything. Ill try taking pictures...

EDIT PICTURES.






sorry for the bad pics.

Usually some body shops have the real good double sided tape and that shit wont come off easy at all. Just got some tailight covers and they used what they had and that shit is not coming off.
Ask a good body shop i still think its 3M but its real heavy duty and bodyshops and stuff use it.

yeah double sided tape didnt do the trick for me. i went to home depot and got some industrial strength velcro. its realy strong. i put it on the top and on the outside (only nest to the blinker). very hard to budge. dont be worried about anyone stealing them cause i mean if they try to steal them they will prob end up breaking them off so either way ur screwed.

Have u tried to heat up the tap a lil..wiht like a blow dryer to make it even sticker...

Like heat up the tape a lil...den stick it to the eyelid, then heat up the other side..and place it on the headlight..then allow to cool.

I'm jsut wondering, cuz thats how i put on emlbems. Might work...tho..y not give it a try.

My body shop installed my eyelids and used some kind of caulk/epoxy that was in a tube. the installation is permanent (which i dont mind) and have no worries about loosing (someone stealing) them. The glue is pretty much bulletproof....and any chips that may happen, a tube of touch up paint should do the trick.

Oh yea, i got the flatline eyelids.

well since its my first set of eyelids ever, i guess its alright

didnt realize how breakable they were...i put a crack in it...
the under side (where noone can see) is all focked up...meaning no paint...

but its a good fit and i would buy from them again if my eyelids ever get stolen :eek:
