This is my understanding:
GTO headlights = 3 choices
• OEM = Best but expensive if new / good condition
• Spyder = Not horrible, but not great.
• Dorman = Well, I'm glad there's more options, but not these.


Sadly my OEM headlights were beyond saving and I ended up buying the Spyder headlights (back in 2015). The 1st year they weren't horrible. I actually began to like them despite their "cheap" styling / materials. A year later whatever "protective coating" that was on them began peeling. Once it all peeled off the lights began to yellow a bit, but I figure I would restore them, no big deal. Unfortunately something dripped on them recently and ate into the plastic, so now I'm smurfed.

Long story short, if I bought new Spyder headlights. Can your product be applied to these despite whatever protective coating is already on them?

Annnd by chance do you know of another option of headlight assemblies for the GTO?

We have heard similar experiences with spyder headlights with different applications. Even OE lights can have similar issues. A lot of current Porsche's and C6 Corvette's etc can have similar issues.


The factory coating may fail with or without protecting the surface. Though the film will tend to hold things together longer than if nothing were there. Keep in mind though if the oe coating fails and when the film is removed down the road the adhesive will pull off any loose areas.


As for alternative headlights, sorry don't have any other suggestions.
