headlight protector

What are you guys using for headlight protectors? I went out lookin of a wire mesh kinda thing at the auto parts places and no one has them. I was originaly thinking about those wire mesh things I used to see years ago. I am now thinkin about velcroing a clear plastic piece over the light.

How about polycarbonate plastic? Is that something that is available at the local box or hardware store?

thanks

Thanks I saw your thread before. I tried a search and still couldn't come up with it.

I went to ebay and can't find the covers. Any idea who you got them from? I guess if push comes to shove I could make them out of some kinda cridder wire or the plastic thing.

thanks again

I think I posted in the link I got them off of EBay.. about $10

Just took a look, and I can't find any there. That's a first. hmmmmmmm.

Keep looking there eventually has to be a pair come up for auction. This time last year you could get all you wanted.

Look up Plastics in your phone book. These types of stores have sheets of plastics or squares to sell you or even might give you a small piece from their scrap bin. Try Ace hardware or lowes.
