Looking for yellow film that wont burn

I purchased the yellow fog light film from koolkev. Thought it would be ok to run them with Nokya 2500k bulbs per someones advice on here. They are now brown after about 2 months. How do I remove them? Also is there any film that wont burn, or at least lasts longer?

um i just used a blade and scratched it off. Other than that i guess turn it on for a little to heat it up then try to peel it. Its only because the bulbs are hotter than the HID's from what i can tell. I had the same problem after 6 months with mines then i decided to use HID foglights 35watt and its been fine for a long time now.

I agree with using a blade but I wouldn't scrape it off. If it was me, I'd remove the fog light housing then use the blade to peel a small amount of vinyl at the edge then just use your fingers from then on. It'll be a bit of a PITA but at least you're not going to scratch your lens. Try using a heat gun or just the regular blow dryer to soften up the film.

Try azncarbos's yellow vinyl film. He sells it for $7.50 and if my memory is correct, he said that he has been using it for 2 years.

IM USING A.M. YELLOW BULBS (35WATT) AND LAMIN-X
BUT I LEAVE A SMALL AMOUNT OF THE EDGE OF THE GLASS UNCOVERED (1/8") AND IT SEEMS TO LAST 6MO OR MORE, I USUALLY CHANGE IT OUT BEFORE IT GETS TOO SCRATCHED UP FROM ROAD DEBRI (SP)
I READ SOMEWHERE LEACING THE SLIGHT SPACE OF GLASS UNCOVERED HELPS THE GLASS NOT HEAT UP AS MUCH THUS BURNING THE LAMIN-X
HERE IS THE WEBSITE
