Honda Fit Fog light stone protector

​I have a 2009 Fit Sport which I tow behind a 2014 Canyon Star. It is an excellent car for this purpose. I have just had a fog light replaced after it was broken by a stone thrown up by the motor home.
Does anyone make a cover for these lights I can install while towing?? I do not want total cover (car bra) for the front of the car. I have looked at the Lami-x film and t does not look as if it will stop a big stone.
If nothing turns up I plan to cover the fog lights with Duct Tape while towing the vehicle, and remove it each time I drive at night.
Any suggestions are welcome ​
​Thanks
Bob

Bob, just get you a Protect-A-Tow. Gives you complete protection!

Do you have to drill holes in the towed car to attach the eye-bolts?

Yep, just a couple of holes in the plastic underneath the front cap in front of the wheels. I used stainless steel eye bolts and painted them flat black, so you don't even notice them when you're not towing.

Joe & Annette,
Thanks for the advice. I will probably get a Protect-a-Tow. It looks like a good piece of kit. I am not sure if I can rig it so it protects the lower fog lights, but it will certainly protect the rest of the car. We have towed it for about 8,000 miles and there are a few marks on the front.
Thanks a million for your advice.
Bob

Bob,

I've been using these 2009 Honda Fit | Headlamp Headlight Protection, LampGard by WeatherTech | WeatherTech.com (or similar brands) for years to protect my lights....mainly from uv effects. No hazing or breakages yet. I think the longest I've kept a vehicle is about 10 years so I can't vouch for longer times. I have seen quite a few of the same make and model headlights being cloudy after mine were 3 years old and none had the protectors.

Bob, if you will put those eye bolts back as close to the tires as possible I would think your lights should be fully protected!

Does your MH have a rear exhaust pipe? This could be a huge problem if so!

Oops! Looks like I did a duplicate post!
