    3M headlight film protector

    so i was lookin to buying some for my one pieces to protect from rock chips and stuff flying at my lights. i was reading that someone put them on their fogs ( not a g2 tho) and it burned and melted. so my question is are jdm lights hot enough to melt the film? does anyone else have it on their lights? any ideas would be great

    What the hell? I've never heard of this melting.

    I'm also looking into the film but it's a bit on the expensive side. And since our lights are so long and contoured by the turn signals, I don't know how it would fit.

    I've checked around and no one has a kit for our cars yet - even though I email them every now and then. I did take measurements though.

      they must have put some cheap shit on there. The real stuff is ment to be on the glass/plastic to protect the headlights from damage.

          jdm lights should be a lot cooler due to them being plastic vs glass.

          the 3m film that i think you're talking about is indeed expensive. my neighbor spent 500$ on a film kit for his sti. no it didnt cover the whole car..

              Yeah this shit is expensive...I was looking around for a clear bra for my G35 and everyone wanted 500-1000 bucks just to install it...fuk that. I bought a 3M clear bra for 150 bucks and i'll do that shit myself...I dont really car if I mess it up..I figure I have 4 tries to mess it up before I wasted my money

                just go to your local crap tire or part source and you can get some sheets of headlight protectors forget the brand... not 3m... but this stuff is super strong... its demo'd as taking a shot gun pellet and still protecting the light.

                And it's guaranteed never to yellow... cut to your headlight and your ready to go.

                I've had mine on for 8 months now no melting can't even tell it's on... and best of all no yellowing.

                    don't even need to heat gun it on... it's like 75 buxs i think for a sheet of 8.5 by 12 i believe.

                    It's good stuff trust me. Head down to a part source or canadian tire (they the same owned by canadian tire) and you can get them... i'll call after i get off work i forgot my cell to get the actual name of the product.

                        saw it on tv haha (as trusting as that should be) but ya i've seen both the 3m stuff is like a film.. but this sheet is like 3-4mm thick... but don't worry you can't notice it at all on the car. Still at work though
