Hey, did my eyelid overlays from BlueBatMobile yesterday. I would definitely recommend it, as I think it makes the car look a little more aggressive, and BlueBat's "Color matched" option actually matches the FM fairly well.



Here's a close-up :-D



Sorry, I got a little camera happy



I also painted my calipers red with the Duplicolor kit. The paint and cleaner were great, but the brush it came with was falling apart as I went on. By the time I was done with the front two wheels, it had already fallen apart!
Here are the pics:

That looks reall nice, don't know if I would do it though. Close up it doesn't look that good, but far away looks great... are the back calipers painted?

Thanks. I don't think the pics really do the lids justice. They blend in a lot more in person. Nah, the back calipers aren't painted. I wasn't sure which would look better, so I decided I'd just do the fronts for now, and just do the backs later if I wanna.

They were actually a lot easier than I thought. For the first caliper, we took it off, but then realized that we really didn't need to cuz the paint was thick enough and didn't run off onto the rotors. Plus, the one drop I got on the rotor was cleaned off with the provided brake cleaner.
