Check out the website at www.stongard.com  I just bought a set of light 
covers and a set for the PIAA 1500 series I bought but have not 
installed. These were purchased for the family truckster (96 grand 
caravan). $5o bucks for all four. They were very easy to install and
you can not tell there is anything on the lamp assembly. They stongard 
lights as they call them are a film about 1/8 inch thick that is fairly 
pliable and has a self adhesive that sticks right to the glass/plastic.
One thing that did bother me, they claim a 3 year breakage warrenty but 
there is a $15 dollar fee to activate this. Of course they don't tell 
you this in the brochure.
I bought these for the van as I will be going from Seattle to L.A. next 
week and I don't like broken or pitted lights from rock chips.
