 Does anybody know where I can get some of the 3M protective film? 
 last time I purchased it from AVS for the SPENDY amount of $50 for two
 sheets of 8x16'', 
 any cheaper source?

My original post from Nov. 26 follows:

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:
