Hi all,

Has anyone heard of a vendor selling eyelids for our SH Foresters? Thought it would make the front end look more aggressive. If not, anyone have a DIY with Lamin-X film or something of the sort?

Also, not sure if anyone has ordered parts from this vendor: Carbon Fiber Front Mesh Grill for 2009-2011 Subaru Forester - JP Carbon

Look to sell a nice looking sports grill and instead of the surround being body colored it is carbon fiber. It's also a significantly cheaper option than the dealer sports grill.

Thoughts/suggestions?

My understanding is that he carbon fiber grill does not fit all that great. I believe somebody here purchased one along with the rear and side skirts.

Here's my plan, sort of... Order a gold sh sports grill from Jackie. She has them on clearance and then paint/plastidip/vinyl whichever way you want. It saves a bit and you can get creative making it unique.

Sounds good. Thanks for the heads up.

Any ideas on eye lids? Perhaps plastidip (silver color as my car is silver). Has anyone attempted this?

Thinking of tacking the idea next week. Still on the fence about it. Make sure your lines are even for both head lights.

Bogey - yeah i agree. I was thinking of getting some cardstock paper, holding over the headlight and draw out a line that looked good. Then take that stencil and cut from a sheet of lamin-x to see how it looks. If you get to the task before i do make sure to post some pics!
