    I found this stuff called Bullet Proof Windshield protectant, it's supposed to protect your windshield from sandblasting and minor rock chips. It's a spray-on stuff you let cure. Has anyone used it? What did you think? Effective? Worth the money/effort/time?

    Just got my windshield replaced, and would prefer not to pay for that again!

    personally I wouldn't buy it. I would imagine that the "spray" would have to be put on really thick to be "bullet proof" which could possibly reduce the visibility through the windshield. I could be wrong though...

    Wax your windshield? sorry for my noobness but I've never heard of that, helps though? sounds like looking into, my windshield is all but destroyed right now so after I get it replaced I'll be looking into any protection I can...

    okay now that I've skimmed that link it seems legit but still wouldn't trust it... since it just repairs the rock chip or crack wouldn't it just make that rock chip area stronger? and I agree with the post ^^^ up there about it should of come that way from factory..

    Sorry, completely unrelated but I couldn't help laughing after realizing all of our sig pics are the exact same angle. lol, it's like that cliche facebook angle, "But it makes me look better!"

    Definitely the driver's side for me haha, passenger side has some gnarley rocky mountain pinstriping since I just cant quite see my tree clearance over there when wheeling. I have the same problem with my scoop, can't freakin see over that monster!! haha but anyways.... just checked out the link, for that price it looks worth a try! Can't hurt right?

    Ha! I noticed the sig pics are like that, and I started to laugh and reply and noticed all the comments.

    Mine is just like that because the mud was more impressive on the driver's side that day.

    It would repair micro chips from sand, but I kinda think it also coats the outside of the windshield, so it makes sense that it would give some protection. I guess there's a booster thing you put in your wiper fluid so it keeps refreshing the top surface of the coating, and then at months 4 and 8 you retreat the entire window.

    They have a similar product for headlights, and I've used other headlight cleaners/pit fillers on my old car and they worked really well, but they didn't claim to prevent new damage, only fill in existing pits.

    My lil honda has 280k miles of sandblasting on the original windshield. Maybe I'll buy this to see how well it works. But maybe not. I can't see this working on any level.
