Today I had a brief moment to apply yellow Lamin-X protective film onto the fog lights. If you ever wondered how “JDM” yellow fog lights look on a 2012 Toyota Prius Four, this is it. When I have more time, I’ll apply the optic blue headlight Lamin-x protective film. Because of the headlights’ contoured shape, applying the film is harder than it looks.

I like how they look more than the clear OEM-style. The Lamin-X films are removable for about 2 months max. Then, from my experience with the RSX, it will become increasingly hard to remove without a heat source. But then again, I was running 55w Nokya H11 halogens in with the Lamin-X film on the RSX; the end result was the film melted onto the lens. Nothing a good dose of Goo-Off can’t take care of. However, since I’ll be pairing the film with lower power LED replacement bulbs, I think the film will not become one with the lens.

Where to Buy

Lamin-X protective film for 2010+ Prius – $59.95, set includes headlamps, fog lights and turn signal cover (for 2010-2011 year models). Choice of clear, tint, gun smoked, optic blue and yellow colors.
