Headlight protection

Fellow Quattrophiles,

For those of you concerned/experienced with those aggravating stone
chips/holes in your glass headlight lenses (aren't we all) and frustrated
with those snap-on headlight guards (which don't work for my V8 with
headlight wipers anyway), I found something interesting in the Griot's Garage
(Tacoma, WA )catalog --no afilliation.

They have (among their neat tools and car care products) a product called Head
light Protection Shield, which is an adhesive-backed clear vinyl that you
trim to fit your headlight. They say it is 40 mils thick, optically clear
(designed not to yellow), and can withstand a pellet rifle shot from 20 feet
with absolutely no damage to the lens. Not designed for polycarbonate lenses.

Stock No.  Size:     Price:
10227     10" x 16" $22.95
10228     20" x 16"   44.95
10229     10" x 16"   16.95 (20 mils thick for Fog lights and turn signals)

Now the bad news:  They are on backorder (2 week wait- I ordered the 20 x 16
size).  I'm also checking into a discount for those subscribing to the list
--will let you know.
