I don’t think there is anything. PPF will mess up your intermittent wipers.

Best way is to get insurance that'll cover windshield repairs.

I asked about this at the shop that did my PPF and they said there was a special product they used (forgot the name) but it cost $500 and only lasted 6 months to a year. Couldn't justify that unless I owned something super high end. Just dealing with the little chips for now. Might repair or replace the windshield eventually.

Check out clearplex. I heard it was $250 in SoCal for initial install and then a recommended annual replacement for daily drivers but subsequent replacements would have about $150.

Crazy to think anyone wouldn't have that.

best thing you can do is mimize your freeway driving like others have said and not drive behind any trucks or suvs. my policy when i see a truck or suv in front of me...down shift and drive around them lol.
