About a week ago I received a set of new Toyota Starlet Eyelids in the mail and handed them over to my friend Masa. He had been wanting a set for quite a long time. I actually thought that the carbon fiber eyelids would look cool, but he wanted them color matched to his car so he went with FRP.

After a few days of preparation (sanding and re-sanding) he turned them over to a shop to get them painted. A few days and about $30 later he had a set of silver eyelids. He had them on the next day. Unfortunately, the “eyelid” specified 3M tape didn’t hold up to well and he has had to remove them. I think it has a lot to do with the high humidity here. These are the pics once he reinstalled them.

He has also just finished installing a custom rx7 intercooler to replace his performance (I think ARC) intercooler. We will write more on this later, but here is a teaser picture so you can get an idea.

    What did you use instead of the 3M tape to stick them?

    I’m not sure what he used. Actually, I think he used 3m tape.
