Clear-bra for SRT8 Nose

Just got my SRT8 last Sat.
I love it!
My detail guy says there is a clear bra cut for front of the SRT8.
Has anyone had it done? I would think we will get a lot of
chipping out front.
I had a Pontiac G8GT with similar black metalic and it got
pretty bad after a while.

Re: Clear-bra for SRT8 Nose

Pre-Cut invisibra is a tough fit sometimes and I have heard that is the case with the new SRT8. Try and find a shop that does custom cut - that is what I am doing and I think it will be worth it.

Re: Clear-bra for SRT8 Nose

Already going for a custom cut, my friend owns a CL 63

and it got chipped on the bumper and some of the glass, so he had to pay alot.

i do recommend the 3M type since its the best in the market after researching about it.

but i would really like to know the price difference between UAE and US.

our price is around 7k AED which is somewhere around 2K USD with 5 year warranty on the foil as well as waranty on the shine

the shop said they would paint protect the car first then foil it to have a great shine for years to come.

how much is the price and waranty as well as quality and brand of the clear bra in the US?

any idea?

Question Re: Clear-bra for SRT8 Nose

I was quoted $1,100 for custom, but that included removing factory installed clear bra in front of the rear wheels and making that area bigger, nose, mirrors and sides of windshield.

Have fun,

Matt

I was quoted $1300 but it would include the entire hood, entire front, fenders, rocker panels up to the GRAND CHEROKEE emblem and the mirrors. It has to be a custom job as the kits are not made yet for these rigs. My installer is holding off for another couple weeks, hoping a kit comes out for it, if not we are going to do it custom.

This is the exact estimate I got for custom cut -

hood-12inches= $295.00 (I suggest removing 'jeep' lettering from hood for cleanest install)
frontbumper = $525.00 (That bumper is huge, & will use a lot of materials)
sidemirrors = $35.00 each.

You may want to protect the headlights. ($35.00 each) and possibly the grill. That is a detailed, time consuming grill. ($235.00)

Re: Clear-bra for SRT8 Nose

When you say custom, will the wrap have visible seems/edges everywhere
or all or mostly tucked in?
With so many ins and out of theGC grill I would think tucking the edges away will be hard to do.

When I say custom, I mean they put the film onto the vehicle and then cut it by hand to match the seams and what not. There will be edges that can be seen. Most vehicles will have a kit that can be downloaded to the installers cutting machine and all they have to do is cut it out and place onto the vehicle. Custom they will have to use a big sheet and cut to match once on the vehicle.
