I am curious if anyone had ever considered fabricating taillight lens covers to protect the lenses from damage such as stone chips?
Would it be difficult or cost prohibitive to fabricate lens covers from plastic similar to blister packaging used to enclose and package products (especially children's toys) for retail sales. It seems it should be an economical product to manufacture by using existing taillight lenses as a form to create a mould and then blow or vacuum the plastic into the mould as I imagine would be done to create blister packaging. Clear plastic covers were (and may still be) available for headlights to protect them from stone chips. I would be interested to know if this would be economically feasible and perhaps a process to create new cheap lens covers?
Does anyone have experience or know how blister packaging is actually done and approximate cost for the process?
