    Received a price quote of 450.00 to do the front of the car in the Lumar Clear Bra wrap. Has anyone done this or have a better idea of protecting the car? Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    Recently discovered a few large scratches on the panel just above the grill, im suspecting the car wash I go to is to blame, so that's getting canceled, anyway I was thinking how a partial plastidipped bra on that panel would look. I have experience with prep and application with plastidip so it...

    Hi - I've not used Plasti-Dip , but have seen a couple of cars that it was used on. Anyway, I have a 2010 Hatch and driving on the freeway (I am in Denver) I'am picking up a few front end chips. I looked at Bras and had some on a few cars back in the "Old Days" and really did not like how they...

    DETAILING: The car was on the dealer lot for only 7 days after it was unloaded from its trip from Japan. They just removed the film and I advised the dealer NO waxes and NO car washes. I took delivery of the car and did the following detail work: Washed Car w/Dawn Dish Soap (removes waxes...

    Which of the two films would provide the better long-term protection or are they about the same quality? The 3M or the SunTech clear film? Both films come with a 5-year warranty. I believe with the thinner clear coats and base paints, rock chips will become more commonplace on newer cars. The...

    I remember seeing a thread on here where someone with a Snowflake White Mazda 3 had a clear bra installed. It wasn't a 3M product, and someone had told be it was far better and nearly the same price, but I can't find that thread anymore. :( Kinda wanna schedule an appointment soon. Thanks in...

    What product is everyone using for the "Cear Bra"? I hear 3M Scotchgard and Expel are the best. Looking to get hood/bumper/mirrors/door handle cups done. Thanks.

    Hey guys if anyone is looking for a great tint job or a clear bra shield installation you have to check out United Solar. They are a local family owned shop that does window tinting and graphics. Bobby and his wife are the owners and operators of the shop. They are awesome to work with and will...

    Just want to know if the black front bra will fit the GT hatch's. All vendors that sell the bra's list them for the S models and no listing for the GT. Just curious if there is a difference or if the S model bra will fit on a GT. And yes, I know about the clear bras and their advantages and the...

    Anyone have any suggestions for the best websites to purchase kits for a clear bra?? Never put one on before but looks like something I could handle... Would like to look into it, but thought best to get some advice first. Thanks

    Have any of you guys have this done to your vehicle? I've been getting estimates and so far they are in the $400-$1200 range. Thats for covering the front bumper/grill, 12" of the hood, rear view mirrors, and fender. Im still debating on the price but I really need this stuff cuz I'm starting to...

    This is something I have really been wondering about in my whoppong two days of ownership. Has anybody had one of these on their car? Or even one better, has anyone done the installation themselves? It sounds like a person could save a bundle if they did it themselves. I'm just wondering how...
