Opinions on Lamin-x protective films??

Hey guys, quick question for yall.

Some one on here showed me the Lamin-x protective films for your head,fog and tail lights. I like the idea of them.. But i read some reviews on their website and 3 out of 5 people said that theirs came off in a few weeks.. the other 2 said they have had them on for 2 months and there still on strong..

Now my question is.. How many of you have had these before? Have they stayed on? Or came off with washing?

I dont wanna spend 120.00 bucks for My head tail and fog lights just to have them get blown off next time I wash my truck in the drive way..

So.. any help??

Mine was ok on one side (sort of) but the other side was constantly bubbling up on the edges, bad. I took them off after a month or so and got some yellow fogs off eBay for $120. They cost more, but I haven't had to think about them once since, except to admire them of course.

Yeah, I wanted to yellow out my fogs and read the same thing about the film. I paid $6 at a craft store for a can of yellow stained glass window paint. Put a few coats on and I think they look awesome. There is a write up on it here already. Very cheap, easy, and looks way better IMO.

i put clear on my headlghts and tint color on my fogs (helped match the BHML look)

they have been on for 3 months or so and look great. kinda hard to put on but follow the directions and they come out great

they are not peeling off at all.
