    chances are if you put beam benders on the plastic headlamp lenses, you will be stuck with them...or at least the adhesive.

    it attacks the plastic, probably due to heat from the headlights, and cant fully be removed.

    many folks buy headlamp protectors and fit them with beam deflectors.

    Hi, we got some of these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FIAT-DUCA...2006-TO-DATE-TOURING-CONVERTORS-/251332039162

    I was told if you had your headlights on for long periods with anything stuck to the plastic headlight lenses they get very hot and might crack, whether its true or not I don't know.:BigGrin:

    But they do protect your headlights and tell you where to blank off for europe.:thumb:

    Our last motorhome had a switch behind the headlights, but then that was a Mercedes. :Eek!::Rofl1: Bob.
