Im in the Southern California area and for several reasons here, I have decided to bulletproof my windows and door panels if possible. I wanted to find out who has any ideas of any places around Southern California that would do it. Also I know it would be costly but any bold park figure? Hope you can help as I want to do this soon. AND NO IM NOT RUNNING FROM ANYBODY!!!!!!!!! Ha ha ha ha ! :goodtimes:

I watched a show on the Discovery Channel once about a SoCal company that does that for celebs and what not. It's not cheap. I don't remember the name of the company, but I'm sure it's located in the trendy area of LA.

Thanks, at least I know there is some place here in Southern California. I was worried about having to take the car out of state to do that. I hope I find out more.

i think i saw the same show, and it will also make your car considerably heavier, i would like to speculate close to 1000 or so lbs. im not sure what kind of glass they use buy if they use kevlar composites behind door panels and such, it will still weigh alot. i have a kevlar bulletproof vest and its almost 18 lbs. i think your performance will suffer too.

WOW! I didnt think it was going to be that heavy. I guess your right performance would suck later.

That&#39;s why I thought you were kidding. You&#39;d be better off just buying a turbo kit so you could fly through the ghetto instead of adding all that weight. You&#39;d never get away!

yeah....this will add a ton of weight. i&#39;ve seen two different ways of doing this. there is a spray on kevlar compound that they apply.....and there is also something like dynomat they put on (also kevlar).

also....costs a pretty penny. they need to re-do the doors since the bulletproof glass is a lot thicker than regular glass.

but....would be cool. you&#39;d have the batmobile.
