LED "Eyelids"

I added LED eyelids to the car this weekend, what do you guys think? Sorry for only one photo, we had a nasty snowstorm and the car is filthy so I still haven't has the chance for a photoshoot! Also wrapped the front emblem in carbon fiber vinyl.

For anyone who is wondering, the lights are side-emitting thin LED strips, I wired them into the parking light circuit so they come on at night and as DRL's.

Yup, I didn't want to open them up so they're just stuck to the edge. The way the headlights are formed at the top creates a lip, it does a nice job of protecting the LEDs from the elements and diffusing the light a bit.
