    That's a good question. I noticed how easily Lexan could be scratched when I made my first set of lenses. So far, mine are holding up fine, but I've got a spare set of Lexan lenses in reserve in case this winter does a number on the fogs.

    Mine are in mint shape so far. But also my car was in the shop for the last month.

    That's good to hear! I bought a piece to test the tint spray and within minutes is was scratched to hell (I did drop it on the floor once) so I was concerned. Heading out to TAP plastics tomorrow to get this party started!

    Just thinking out loud here. But how about spraying on clear "plastidip" on the lenses ? Would that make them more durable you think??

    Use the thickest paint protection film you can find.

    In what way does it look horrible? In my experience. Its a sacrificial layer... Ive been using a 3M film, iirc. A new layer is applied when the film starts to look worn, about once a year or so. After 4 years incl. 4 winters, the lexan underneath is near perfect with no fade or chips... My CTS is winter driven' in a climate where sand and salt is used 6 months of the year.

    Re: Projector halo foglights

    I'm sorry for bumping an old post but I really want to do a project like this for my CTS and I was wondering if the few people who have done this could help me out. I really like the halo fog lights, and I understand how to bake the lights to replace the plastic, but how about what halos to buy? Do the 4" rings fit in nicely where the old fogs were? Could you recommend a pair that are on the market via Ebay? Thanks
