I saw a mention regarding broken lenses / unprotected lights etc

what ya'll need to seriously look into is a product that goes by a few names ~ ClearGaurd, StoneGaurd etc etc... it's a clear laminate that is applied over exposed areas of paint or other areas to protect them from flying debris.

the material used for covering lenses is extremely thick and the manufacturers off headlight breakage warranties (as they are that sure they will prevent breakage)

once installed the material hard to see unless you are looking for it ~ basically it is a clear bra for the vehicle

(BTW... NEVER EVER NEVER EVER use a fabric bra for your car... leave them on women where they belong!!) A bra will absolutely destroy a paint finish in short order.

ANYHOW.. call around.. the best place to find the protection film is a window tint shop. ~ as the film is definately not an amateur install job, regardless of what factory websites may tell you. ~ unless you know how to install vinyl sign materials or window tint ~ pay someone to do it for you.

~~~this should solve any breakage and road rock chip-paint issues

(and no, you can't cover your windsheild with it .. yes, I've been asked)

RML, I looked for the clear film for door edges you mentioned in your post. I couldn't find it at the jcwhitney website. Can you tell me the category to look for on the site? I also couldn't find any reference to ClearGuard or StoneGuard. Thanks.

Gotta agree with windowtint on this one. Here in dusty Oklahoma, i've seen many a nice paint job ruined by a "bra". Not to sound sexist, bras are for ladies not cars. :D

I can do without the "bro" but perhaps I'll get the licence plate "Assman".
