08 accord sedan eyebrows/eyelids

Sup guys? I really am having a hard time finding "eyebrows" or "eyelids" for my 08 accord sedan. Anyone know where to get them?

Google Sarona eyelids - they are the best quality but will run about $100 unpainted.

The Saronas are layered fiberglass that is rigid whereas the eBay versions are either stickers or flexible like construction paper. This is a get-what-you-pay-for situation.

op, you are already paying 60 dollars without tax, you must as well go with the 100 dollars one. being that doom told you, its crap.
if you don't have enough money to pay for it, then save up and wait a little longer. don't rush into it. =D

They block light output (compare their shape to Sarona), they need to be taped down to the front of the lens and may bake on (and compromise the lens coating), and last they are the same thickness and rigidity as construction paper. I'm not optimistic how well they would take paint and last. You save $40 on the Saronas but by the time you pay for paint that $40 is nothing. I'll close by saying that non-kitted Accords tend to look a little off sporting eyelids.

Check back in after your install.

I found a better set of eyelids. They are true carbon fiber. I have dealt with this seller before and they are great. I am going to buy these, post pics and do a review. I will let you all know.
