Installing Eyelids

I did a search, yielded nothing. What's the easiest way to install a set of eyelids? I just got mine in the mail, I was thinking 3M Adhesive tape? Or should I gorilla glue them on..

blech i already bought them so they will go on most likely after I get my smoked corners. If I don't like it, I can always remove it. I'm just gonna use 3M tape. PLUS, I turned on the headlights with them just in place being held by the hood, and they do a decent job of creating a cutoff (not really a cutoff, but at least cutting off a lot of the reflected light that gets dispersed above the roof line of the car).

Yeah I didn't think they'd do much at all for the light output, but it does make it a bit easier for the oncoming traffic with my HID in the reflectors

Use butter, that way when you are driving along, they will dispose of themselves without you having to take the hastle.

And I'd go for 3M tape, you can remove it if you want and it will hold well, too.
