Windshield protection

Anyone have anything on their windshields?? Looking for a product I can install myself.. Crystal fusion..diamond coating etc. had it on my optima before I traded it multiple rocks hit my windshield and never cracked. Could have been luck, just want the same fighting chance with the new ride

If there was a coating to improve wind screen safety the manufacturers would have fitted it as standard and insurance companies would insist on it.
I have heard of a lamination product on a windscreen deteriorating and bubbling which would be likely hood of any thing applied to give shock resistance.
Down to luck

Opti-Glass Coating won't protect your windshield from small rocks but it can improve resistance against scratching.

Been using Diamondite for a year now, works really great and very helpful when driving in a rainy day.
