DIY Eyelids

Anyone attempted to make eyelids for their Gen1 Leaf? In my opinion, it improves the look of the Leaf tenfold, and removes the "froggy" appearance.

Thoughts? Should be easy to DIY!

Those look awesome! Do they cause any functional issues with the car? I know the headlights can be somewhat tempermental about light levels and throwing codes.

None whatsoever on the ZE0 / AZE0

I started embarking on this mod, the rear piece pops out easily, it's held on with two 10mm bolts

After tinting the rear piece, it looks better, but still needs some film on the top front piece to look OEM.
