I finally got the hood and lids painted TK. This was from group buy 2. I was the only Blazing Blue from group buy 2. The color didn't match USDM Blazing Blue, so I had the lids repainted when I got my CF hood painted. PIST OFF YARI UNITE!

Thanks for the pics, Yarisight! That's an aggressive look right there...
Sorry about the paint thing... It is really hard to get some colors to match OEM sometimes, especially when I don't have an actual USDM part to compare it to.

not really. But then again, I guess it also depends on what version you have. No one really steals these to begin with and most people who modify our cars are on here. I have v2 which still have a base to them. I believe it's v3 that have that part eliminated.

It is NOT easy to remove the eyelids, as long as you use the 3M tape that I recommend, which is designed to bond with the plastic parts of your car. Then again, if someone tries to pry them off, they may damage the eyelids, which means that at least that idiot won't be able to use them for anything.

The difference between v2 and v3 is essentially just the base, as Treyz correctly mentioned. The base may help a bit on this issue, but not really. The upside of not having the base is that the eyelids are much closer to an OEM look, and there's virtually no rubbing when opening/closing the hood.

So, in essence, the eyelids are as secure as any other "add-on" body part that is attached to your car (be it a spoiler, rocker panels, etc). Obviously those parts will be more secure if they are drilled/bolted in place as well as taped, which is something that cannot be accomplished with the eyelids.

Guess I'll jump onto the eyelid band wagon. Ordered up a pair from Garm today. Next I need to order the paint and probably some clear coat. He recommended AutomotiveTouchUp.com for the supplies. Looks like $19.95 for the spray paint (12oz) and $7.95 for the clear coat (12oz). They make it real easy to get the right paint. Total shipped to my door is $36.23. Just paid for those items too.

I'll post some before and after shots. It will probably be in January before I can get it done.

That's great news! Looking forward to those pics.
Please let us know about that paint touch up service! That would really help a lot of people decide on getting those lids for their cars.

Once I got mine, I test fitted them over and over sanding down what ever was needed. Got the gap even on both sides so that there is no rubbing.

Actually, you don't need to do that. You'll be getting v3's.

Yup .. what I did was for Version 2 and probably those that have version 1 could do the same if they wish.

So if I get these I'll have to probably paint them. Does anyone by any chance know what the color "Blaze Blue" is known outside of Toyota? I don't want to mess up the color and have to repaint it.

Oh and how much would it cost to have these painted?

Edit: Sorry hadn't noticed someone went over price already. Either way, if anyone actually knows what Blazing Blue is known as to the rest of the world, it'll save me some guess work (and possibly some money). heh

The color code for the paint should be on the door panel.
