What is "OEM protectors"?

Looks like they are available here again;

Hi All,

After quite a few months of development, I can finally announce I have a finished fog light protector for sale. I don't need to tell you how expensive the fog lights are to replace. The protector only takes a few minutes to fit and I think is fairly unobtrusive. I have produced a kit with full fitting instructions to make it easy to fit. The cost: £19.95. I am offering TIPEC members free postage on this item. Read on:

Kit Contents:

Fitting Instructions
2 X Fog Light Protectors
4 X Screws
4 X Screw Covers - chrome effect or plain white (can be painted to colour of the car) Please specify your preference when ordering.

Step 1: Unscrew the trim covers on either side of the fog light. Remove the screws out of the trim covers.

Image

Step 2: Take the first fog light protector. Take a few moments to get the fog light protector orientation correct. Once you’re happy you have the correct orientation of the fog light protector, place the new screws through the screw covers. Pass these through the holes cut in the fog light protector. Now screw the fog light trim covers back on so the fog light protector becomes one complete unit. You are aiming for something that looks like the picture below.

Image

Step 3: Offer the fog light protector assembly up to the fog light. You should be able to screw the assembly back into the fixings from which the original trim cover screws were originally fitted.

Image

Step 4: Fit the screw head caps. And admire.

Image

When viewed from a distance, you can bearly notice that these are fitted. Payment will be taken through PayPal: ben.rodrigues@tiscali.co.uk

Patent applied for. Patent pending.

Hope you like the product.

Ben :bounce:

My set finally arrived once the posty started delivering again, with delays due to all the snow up here. To be fair posted day after I paid, so hats off for good service, shame about the weather.

with the thaw I shall fit tomorrow, now the car is accessible again.

look superb well packed and thanks for the different sets of fittings, I will go with the silver.

I've just put my car back on the road, being already fed up with it being sat in the garage after just five weeks. I had recently bought a pair of Ben's fog light protectors so thought it wise to fit them this morning.

Easy job and I can't even tell they're on there. The only tip I would give is that the trim covers, or end caps (or whatever you call the bits of plastic that are screwed on at either end of the fog lights), can be taken apart and washed to get rid of the muck that's inside them and therefore makes the bottom half of them look dirty - as can be seen on Ben's photos. They just unclip. It's definitely worth doing.

Good product though, and like somebody else said, well presented / packaged and quickly delivered.

Just reading this thread, and noticed this comment, this really does prove how much of a cockney wanker the pervious owner of my car really was taken a £20 pair of spot/fog light protectors off, amongst other bits & piece's before selling the car !!! :mumum:

looks really nice.

Does dirt get behind the protector & is there another alternative, less visible chrome screw covers?

Well done!
