Angry eyes with plastidip

Hey all. Looking to use plastidip to put angry eyes on the jeep this weekend. Any tips on how to make them look decent and last?

Tape off the area all around where you want the eye lids. Apply several light coats. The hardest part is getting a sharp line when you pull the tape.

That is about the extend of it.

I didn't say "don't do it." If you do weird things I'll make fun of it. I expect the same treatment.

I'll say it. Don't do it. I saw too many VW beetles with the same thing.

This RedRock 4x4 Angry Eyes Conversion Kit are still on pre-order and it isn't cheap, but it is an option if you don't want to spray or if you like the look. Another option would be to get some dark tint and cut it that way. The place that did the windows on my daily had all different colors of tint for head lights/fog lights and I'm sure that would work. Good Luck!

Meh...does not look weird to me.

Pretty common for owners to make the headlights looks like eyes of some sort. I've thought about swapping out my headlighs and getting some halo's...and also going with the grill that looks like an furrowed brow....but I'm too cheap for that.
