Headlight Covers for Aircooled Accessorries

It seems the alternatives are the chrome cast stone grills which often require removal of the glass - not a good idea if you ever drive in the rain.  Then there the chromed mesh look which inspires a more off-road rallye look.  The ones you have look like what Panhandle Bob has - they fit very well over the glass plus being stainless steel they should take minimum upkeep and not break like the cast ones.

I installed mine from AC a couple months ago. Took about five minutes and I didn't want to remove the glass as Wolfgang mentioned. 

I like the look. I understand that they are the earliest of the stone guards, the mesh version coming later.

I have found that these don't block as much light as the mesh either. They are very well made, and sturdy without being bulky.

 

I suspect the easiest solution to having to replace cracked headlight lenses would be to cover them with paint protective film (PPF).  It is just a slightly curved surface so easy application.  Problem is when one lens gets "stoned" you end up replacing both since it is hard to match the manf/design on the glass.
