But how will cager-senpai notice you?

That looks nice, but I'm not sure you accomplished the whole mission objective. Now the openings look like ET's eyes. (Not a diss, just an observation!)

Now I'm going to have to wonder about applying something to enhance the alien likeness.

I've been wondering about doing this. Nice work! Those long eyelash triangles have always looked a bit strange.

Any recollection on who?

I've been looking all around for the vinyl for my wee but couldn't find where to buy it. I will probably mask the headlights on my 2013 and paint all the white in the front plus the alien headlight corners. We'll see how it ends up looking like. Worse case scenario I'm out one can of plasti dip and some masking tape.

On my V2 I have plasti Dip on the tank & beak also the lower parts of my Givi airflow screen are flat black to stop glare from the headlight bouncing back at me.

There was a fellow on the VSRI site called himself Speedstar and had what he called headlight masks. Made of dark tinted 3M vinyl with an adhesive, they were easy to apply and look and last great. I've had them on my '11 Wee for about 5 yrs.
This link will take you to the Vendor area on the VSRI site, but there are no longer pics associated. There is an email address in the link. Perhaps he still makes/has some.,12989.0.html
Here's a link of how they look on my Wee.,27394.0.html

Please update if Speedstar still makes these. I will try to tint first but like the plastidip too.
