Installing Exoshield Windshield Protection Film on Our F-150
Project TOTYl Resurrection: Part Eight- 1997 Ford F-150
This old Ford has been through a lot. After winning Motor Trend's Truck of the Year back in '97, it became the parts hauler, moving truck, and the vehicle you leave at the airport for a week. It spent the rest of the time in a parking garage. Finally, at nearly 20 years of age, we decided it was time for a modest makeover, and we got it back into fighting condition. For the last few years it has been a trusty parts hauler and occasional tow vehicle. But while sitting in the company parking lot with a dead battery, the truck was broken into. We decided it was high time to enter phase 2.0 and build the truck back up to a new level of awesomeness. We started off with an interior update from TMI, followed by custom Dub IR glass tint by Daley Visual. For this installment, we returned to Daley Visual in Corona, CA to check out a new product they sell called ExoShield.
ExoShield is a transparent film that is applied on the exterior surface of a windshield to withstand the impact of stones. It can increase the impact resistance of your windshield by six times. ExoShield can also reject 99.9% of harmful UV radiation to protect you and your passengers as well as your truck's interior. When installed on a new windshield, ExoShield only reduces visible light transmittance by 1.5%, which is pretty much unnoticeable. The ExoShield film is applied just like window tint, except its applied to the outside of the glass and is quite a bit thicker. Anyone with glass-tinting experience can install ExoShield. We can definitely see this helping out with chips and cracks, out on the trail and on your daily freeway commute.
