I got the accolade eyelids, they suck ass. The material sucks and cannot be painted properly long story short I am looking for good ones.

I *now decided to not consider fiberglass ones, only ABS plastic. speedline I heard sucks, I have heard good things about silvia parts. I know the speedline one is ABS, not sure aboue silvia parts.

Any comments?

I guess the sedan and the hatchback have different type of headlights because silvia parts eyelids for the sedan are $55 and the hatch are $80

It says that shipping is included in the total price of $80 for the hatch and $55 for the sedan.

Nice. I'm just wondering about the painting, though. I wonder if they can do special colors, too, i.e. Whitewater Pearl

I have the silviaparts.com eylids on my hatch. I really liked Mattleegee's so I bought some as well. They are fiberglass. Fit was probably a 8/10. They do require a lot of test fitting and a fair amount of tape to get them just right. The paint is pretty good, given that there will always be a variation of how the paint will look on various materials as well as how the paint cures on different materials (metal, ABS, Fiberglass, etc.). Here are some pics of the prepainted ones I ordered on my car:

nice i really like those, and the fact that their pre-painted is a plus.. well worth the price to have them painted there then to search out some place locally..

yeah they couldnt be painted properly even thou they were primed the paint keeps seeing thru and saturating the thing and creates a bad finish n etc.

since the hatch ones are fiberglass are the sedan ones the same? For the guy with the sedan, i may have missed it but did u get your prepainted? If not was there much prep work to do did you send it out to get painted?
