Install carbon fiber Eyelid

I what'd the front headlights to look much sporty and slimmer.
I got the parts from ebay which is a very thin Carbon Fiber and stick on top of the headlight.

this is a easy DIY but there was 1 problem with the install which need to be done before sticking it on.

on the top of the light were the white light is, you will need to stick a black tape to cover it or the light will show throw the gap at the top of the carbon fiber part.

I did some Photoshop of how it would look and some on how to install the tape.

IMO it would look cleaner if you paint the cover with your car's color.
