    Just purchased some new valeo FL headlights, and as I do around 25K miles a year I would like to get some protection film, I was looking at this stuff Clear Headlight Taillight Bumper Hood Paint Protection Film Vinyl 30cmx60cm | eBay but don't want to leave any glue or residue that could damage the headlight. Anyone got any recommendations on this, would like something that appears invisible, don't want any horrible bulky covers.

    Yeah its easy to do just patience and a steady hand and roughly 2 hours of your time and a couple more to let them go off !!

    hey each to their own only a suggestion, but me no likely chrome hence why everything chrome will be gone by end of the month which is why i tinted for £12.50 rather than replace for £200+ for a set of new black lights :) !! To be fair my xenon headlights i got were pretty shiney but going for a blacked out with red bits here and there theme so had to just vinyl them as i only paid £80 for the lights (complete with ballast etc) posted so saved alround i guess !!
