Xpel application on headlights/foglights
 
After having Xpel on the front hood, A pillars, mirror caps, front bumper wrap, top of roof, rocker panels on doors since purchasing last October - I had the opportunity last week to have a good installer put Xpel on my headlights and foglights.

It's something I should have done originally - but my installer this time did a great job. It will prevent damage to the lights from chipping and I think it looks great, no orange peel effect or anything.

Damn, that must have cost you a pretty penny to have that much clear bra installed! Places around here wanted $600 just for the bumper, hood, and fenders. Thats good though, your keeping the car nice and mint for the next owner :-D

Just ordered up a set of Xpel covers for my headlights and fogs from autoanything to protect them. Wish I had the dough for the full front protection package.

Just applied a set of Xpel headlight and fog lights. Applied with just water, b/c there was no alcohol in the house to mix with per the directions. Heated with a heat gun. Took my time. Almost perfect application. Now just got to wait to dry(like waiting for window tint to dry) to see if I applied correctly. Out of a 5 star difficulty, this would be about a 2.5, mostly for time and patience. It took me about 2 hours taking my time to do this. So tomorrow we shall see how they look. I must say, they weren't cut to fit exactly, I was sort towards both ends, the amber reflector side but not by much. Tried heating and stretching and no go. But can hardly tell. Will post pics up once dried...


Now to save to get the front end protection on before winter...

I just installed 3M Venture Shield on the hood, fenders, headlights and fog lights of my JGC that I picked up on Friday. Next weekend the bumper gets done (to hot to do it now). Put the "chrome" bezels around the fog lights. Mud flap install coming later today.

I am going tomorrow to Shades of Gray Window Tint outside of Phili. They are doing a Venture Shield wrap of my bumper, hood, quarter panels, grill and mirrors. This is something I should have done to my previous car.
