Wondered if anybody could recommend a decent window VIN etching kit. I was pretty excited about such a high ROI theft deterrent after being reminded of them through this forum, but was surprised at how slim the options seem to be in terms of finding a DIY kit. Amazon only has a handful of search results that have single-digit or no reviews nor did they come with a clean san-serif font. First website result with Google markets using a 2009 video and hasn't updated their website footer since 2017. Thanks in advance

I've seen more about tips on avoiding the dealer upcharge for VIN etching ($400), and less so for actual DIY etching kits ($20). :)

A few AAA's across the country advertise "free" VIN etching events. It seems like a local program rather than national, but if you're a AAA member and interested in this service, may be worth checking with your local branch to see if it's something they offer:

2017 - AAA Pittsburgh, PA - youtube.com/watch?v=F81JkwLofgE
2018 - AAA Erie, PA - AAA Hosting Free VIN Etching to Deter Vehicle Theft | AAA East Central
2019 - AAA Elizabethtown, KY - https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/news/aaa-fighting-car-theft-with-free-vin-etching/ar-AAIREX6
