How many of you had a rock go through your clear bra before? and also, did your clear bra start turning yellow??

Where do you get a clear bra? Does it cover the Hood at all?


I use a regular black bra on my car & use a magnetic bra on my Hood when I'm traveling a lot. It has saved my car from many a nick. I only drove my car for about 1.5 years before I got the bra and my Hood is tore up with rock marks. I'd hate to see what it would be like without a bra.

the clear bra is a special treatment, not a leather deal like a normal car bra

It covers only the lower portion of the Hood and usually profesional installation is required..


Here's the installation..

I am in the sign business & I have a 3M clear bra on my celica. I installed it myself & have a 24" roll if your interested in some. My car is yellow, however this material is specifically designed not to crack fade or yellow. I've had it on my car for 1.5 years & have not one chip in my paint. I mostly drive on the highway & I'm extremely pleased with this product, also next to invisible. Attached are a bunch of pics of my car. Feel free to contact me thru this post or PM me with any questions you may have abouit this amazing product.

$300, you got raped. I charge for a 24" high by 5' long section - $125 installed. This will cover from the front of the Hood to about 2" under the Hood scoop. Factory is probably not 3M & not as thick. This is 8 mil. thick. All you have to do is wax it like the rest of the car, very low maintenance. Bugs come off with water & a towel.
