Have you tried Stone Guard or something similar? I've been using something similar on the front end of c900s for many years with good results. I finally lost a headlight a couple years ago, but the film was so strong I kept driving around with shattered glass for over a year. ;)

This is really a question for rally-style users.
There was a place (in Canada I think) that was creating a plastic lens to replace the glass headlight lens in OG9-3 in particular Viggens.
I'm hunting for that link so I can post it for you.
Remember the mesh will also trap material and will make cleaning difficult.
A film or plastic coating will be easier to clean.
That's my perspective.

Just about every NG9-3 and 2002-later 9-5 plastic headlights need attention, if not replacement, due to cloudy lenses. I would much prefer glass lenses.

I drove my NG900 all over the place, on busy highways with fast-buck dump trucks, gravel roads, and in winter. I had to replace one broken foglight when I got the car, but the headlights and foglights had no further issues or breaks.
