Re: Anyone try this clear bra? Need recommendation

I have had the 3M clear bra on my last two vehicles. It protects the front very well. I plan on getting it put on my Overland if it ever gets here, hopefully next week. Well worth the money. Just find a reputable installer.

I had this installed on mine; http://solargard.com/Auto/Clearshield

Difficult to see seams or any other trace of bra on my silver GC. I would be wary of attempting to install myself, though, but then again, I'm overly obsessive.

Re: Anyone try this clear bra? Need recommendation

I have it on my S2000 and it was perfect for a while then after being out in the sun for so many years, the shine didn't match as well as the rest of the paint. I clean polish wax my cars twice a year and since you can't wax under the film it doesn't stay as shiney. In addition, when bugs and road grime get onto the film its pretty hard to get off, much easier to get off the paint. I chose to not get it on my WK2 because it sits pretty high up and the vinyl on the bottom end should protect much of the road rox and whatnot from damaging the gray. Best of luck if you decide to go with the bra. Oh and I had the 3M one installed on the S2K.

Re: Anyone try this clear bra? Need recommendation

I bought this kit for the front end of my LTd. It's nice but it was a bit of a PITA and I did not do as good a job as I wished. I did it by myself and it was exhausting.

Re: Anyone try this clear bra? Need recommendation

Thanks for the all the input guys. From what im gathering the results are for the most part positive about these kits. I can manage the install as im good with that kind of stuff and have always had a real steady hand.
As for it fading over the years im sure any kit is eventually going to do that, but in my situation should be as safe as it gets since my car is garaged basically all the time.

I to was wondering about the bikini cut or standard. I just assumed standard as I dont really think I need a rounded cut but they are pretty close in price.
I think I will do the front bumper, hood/fender kit, headlights (unless it degrades the projector output and cutoff), and mirrors. That along with the 10% discount code that was posted would make for a great deal.

Thanks,
James
