intrest check: fiberglass eyebrows
#1264126 - 06/22/06 04:29 AM

ok this all started when someone asked me about my eyebrows on my car. mine are just painted but the need or want to remove them for inspections, carwashes, and any other need to remove them, started to make me think. why not try to make a set, take a bunch of pictures, thickness evaluation, and attachment ideas and make a few sets as a prototype. any interest in these. at my school i get discounts on paint and clear. and even prep materials, all i need is an interest in these. i also need some ideas on size, shape and thickness.mine go to the top most line on the headlight, and all the way across. once i get all that info ill try to make a set based on those specifications. also price? any idea of what people are willing to pay for a full one off set of eyelids?

most guys just use clear headlight covers and paint them so they can pull the covers easily if the need arises. plus it protects the whole light

shavedsvt and I were bouncing ideas off eachother about him possibly making these.

I know I would be interested in a set. He has the materials/resources readily avail. I think these could potentially be alot nicer than the painted clear covers. I have not seen a set of the clear covers on a contique but I would think it would look cleaner putting the fiberglass eyebrow straight onto the factory housing. I also feel this is a better alternative to vinyl brows.

Again this is just an interest check to toss around the idea but if enough are interested he would make a prototype and go from there.

I am waiting to paint my fiber glass eyebrows (almost done!!). If you have any questions on the process I did let me know and we can talk about it.

I personally didn't want to use vinyls or paint due to the fact that I feel it would look cheap. Also they can be easily removed and reinstalled.

I'm interested for sure, but before committing to it, I'd want to see one finished product.

My vinyl eyelids look awesome from a distance but cheap up close.
