Windshield protective film

Has anyone had a protective film such as ClearPlex installed on their windshield for rock protection? If so, does it actually work and is it worth the expense?

I've installed it on my headlights, fog lights, front running lights, and front turning signals. Haven't had any problems, but I can say that about my Diamond Shield also, cause when I stop, I always wash her face. (No bugs Allowed) Stone chips, very few. Thicker film on the lights, and no chips period. No nothing about windshield. The price of a windshield, might be a good idea.

You should consider Ceramic Window tint, https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-...2716659&rt=rud. It protects your window and blocks the heat. Really improves visibility and severely cuts glare.

The 3M product is installed on the interior side of the window. Jerry is looking for something for the exterior side to help alleviate rock chips and pitting. They have multilayer stuff that is used on race cars. Each layer can be pealed off, like an onion, as the race progresses.
