I'm guessing Venom Exhaust Works ad?

As for buying them - no idea. Google doesn't give anything away so you may need to contact Venom and see if they can tell you. But I think they likely made them themselves.

Easy to make, I use to do custom headlight protectors all the time that looked the same as those eye lids, also did plenty of twin circles & all sorts of stuff.

You just need to mask up some Headlight protectors in the design that you want & paint them on the inside with very thin even coats.
The secrete is to make sure the acrylic HL protectors are perfectly clean so use dirt & wax remover or at least a Methylated spirits & water mix & clean them like crazy then don't touch them with dirty oily fingers again. Also don't pile on the paint too thickly.

Once you have total coverage when looking at the HL protector from the outside (usually takes 3 light coats), leave the masking tape & paper on them & then after the paint has cured for a couple of hours spray over the freshly painted area on the inside again but this time with some silver acrylic paint, don't go to heavy with this either, 4 light coats will be enough to stop your masterpiece from scratching. then when that dries Get a sharp thin blade then gently & precisely cut to the edge of the tape & gently pull the masking away

Never had any peel or anyone bring them back.
When i first did them i thought they would peel for sure because no primer was used, but the acrylic paint on the acrylic headlight protector sticks like Sh!t to a blanket.
No need for gloss paint either because the acrylic HL protector acts like a Clear gloss coat on the flat base coat paint.
When you get good at doing it you can add heavy borders & different shades etc & they can look brilliant if you do it properly
It does work so Good luck if you try it.

Hey guys, quite a few people have messaged me in regards to these on here and also on ebay. I told my friend and he is interested in making up a few sets if there is enough interest. I will get him to sign up on here and organise something
