If you're looking for stone shields to protect your headlights, GTS is making them (to order) again.

When I got my coupe way back in 2000, the previous owner fitted some clear acrylic headlight covers shields. Over the years, they became old and cracked from the elements. No one made them anymore so I ran without any protection for a while.

When 3M came out with that thick, headlight film I found a source in Kent, WA that cut them to order but that film is less than ideal, IMO. The adhesive tends to block the already feeble light provided by the 9004 bulbs and it starts to cloud with age. If the lens has compound curves, the film doesn't conform very well even when heat is applied during installation. Also, the film doesn't cover the perimeter of the lens leaving it vulnerable.

Fast forward to three days ago. I just happened to stumble onto an ebay listing for Legend headlight shields. The seller had listed the manufacturer, GTS.

I went to the GTS website (Home - GT Styling) and purchased them direct. Even though they make them to order, they arrived in three days. I purchased two sets.

Normally, I wouldn't bother but some parts are getting near impossible to find.

How do they attach? The seller site does not offer any faq on the subject.
You are right about parts available for our 1st generation Legends.
They snap on. The bottom fits under the lens, the top snaps over the top.

I'll try to get a photo of them installed once I check the aim of the headlights.

Here's the driver side installed (the left is similar). It's hard to tell because of the clear covers (and the photos were taken at night), but you get the idea.
