Closing out a busy March with a couple of shots of one of our newest applications. Cadillac XT^ Headlight and (massive) DRL protection films. Also addresses a popular question. "Which tint level should I use for my headlights if I want the smoked look?"

Stock on the left of the photo and Light Smoke on the right side of the photo.


Closeup of the Light Smoke


The darker the internal parts of the headlight are, the darker the overall look with each application. Light Smoke gives a smoked look - along the lines of a factory smoked headlight - while retaining the most output at night.

A question came in on one of our YouTube videos yesterday and we thought the information would be useful here as well.

Q. Have you ever heard of the headlights overheating because of the protective film? I have heard of the light housing needing to be replaced because of the 3m protective film being over the lenses.

A. In nearly 20 years we have never seen a headlight housing overheat and melt with the application of headlight protection film. The adhesive on the material would fail well before the plastic housing or the polycarbonate lens or even an acrylic lens would.

The biggest factor in overheating is with people with halogen lights retrofitting higher wattage bulbs in the quest for more light output. Higher wattage bulbs cause a myriad of issues not the least of which is an overheating of the wiring.

Applying headlight protection film not going to cause headlight housing or lens failure, it is going to keep your headlights clearer longer as it is going to protect the hard factory UV coating the headlight was manufactured with. Unprotected this coating is slowly sand blasted off one minute chip at a time and over time this allows the sun and elements to attack the lens leading to the all to familiar frosted headlight look you see in any shopping center parking lot.

Although a lot of us have been 'enjoying' an early start to summer, the official kickoff is tomorrow. Brining it in with a fresh set of White NHRA Drag Race number set. Cut, prepped and ready for application.


Are you ready to race? Get your numbers and get at it!

After some supply side issues we have professional grade suede microfiber detail cloths back in stock. Measures ~12 inch x 16 inch (~30cm x 40cm). Highly recommended for DIY installation of all of our Headlight Protection kits and Smoked Taillight kits.


Premium S Korean Microfiber towels are the same ones we use in the YouTube DIY Tutorials and all our installs. Better towel, better install. :)
