I had a question which is just an aesthetics one. I've been looking a lot at the 500 madness carbon fiber eyebrows. I am not really an "eyelid" afficiando and pretty much like my car just "plain" and clean looking . But I have a grigio abarth and I keep thinking those carbon fiber eyebrows would look good color wise and form wise on the car. I'm wondering if anyone has them and likes them, or doesn't, once installed. I kind of think the gray/black carbon fiber color would work well, without any painting, on the grigio abarth.

Clearly they look good with the carbon hood. Wondering if they work well/look good by themselves.

Please let me know if you have thoughts or experience, one way or the other.

Thanks.

I can make them out of cf vinyl for pretty cheap. That way if you don't like them you just peel them off.

That sounds like a good idea! I'll send you a p.m. Thank you.

Any update or pics perhaps? I've seen lots of Wranglers with headlight eyebrows and I think it would look good also on Fiat.

It's a work in progress, nielmon. I'll update soon. Thanks.

I'd like to see this as well. I know what 'eyelids' look like, but what are eyebrows?

you don't really need a template just use masking tape to tape where you want it to cut then apply the vinyl then cut with a masking tape is.

Check out my garage: I have a pic of the CF vinyl wrap eyelids by Boris aka Krayzielilsmoki. Very inexpensive, looks killer, and made from quality vinyl. Beats spending $169+ for real CF eyelids, much tighter fitment, and looks even better than the real McCoy, imo. :encouragement:

does anyone know if they are suitable for fiat 500's in general as the indicaor light is right where the eyelids sit?

The North American 500s indicators are located in the place where your bright lights are(I think), so no they won't work.

I can only speak for the US model, as that's what I have, nothing is blocked by the eyelid. I'll get another picture today.

It doesn't actually "block" anything. The eyelight projector is below the edge of the eyelid and the turn indicator/daylight running light is below the headlight.
