Clear bra paint protection
 
Anyone know the best and cheapest way to get a clear bra professionally done? I'm searching the Internet for places. I live in Dallas, Tx. I've gotten prices between 350 just for the bra before install and 1,900 fully installed with the best material. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I think I paid about $1200 for clear bra for entire front end, mirrors covered, and ceramic window tint, all installed. It's kinda a tuff install on the front, so make sure it get a good installer. If you haven't tried yet go to the 3m website and Lamin-x website and look for installers too. My installer has been doing it for about 20yrs so I'm lucky.

I bought a full front end kit from carprotectionpros.com for about $400 and am doing it myself. I now have much respect for the installers of this stuff as the SRT is a beast to tackle and I thought I would save myself some $$$. I am getting better with each new piece I have installed but by no means will it look like a professional installation. I only have 3,000 miles on mine and there are rock chips all over the place which is why I wanted to get it installed.

I asked my dealer for a 3M clear bra front end installation and they quoted me $499 and the deeper tint for the front windows were $299.

Having it done for tomorrow for 1200, which is the entire front end and the mirrors. Also doing the headlamps. I had another quote for 1650. The guy doing the 3m install said it will take 16hrs and he has been doing it for 15 years. Also comes with a 5 year warranty. I am in Pa and we have bad weather bad roads and tractor trailer that right the left lane all day long. So this is invaluable to have done. Worth every penny to protect such a valued possession.

That's a lot. I had it done for 650 and that included front end, good, mirrors, headlights, and grill. And time wise it was done in 7 hours.

I have seen it vary in price depends who does it and were you are getting it done. 1200 to do the whole front end and 28 inches up the hood pass the heat extractors, the front fender impact area, the rocker panels the mirrors and rear impact zone. I got it back today and you can't even tell it was done. If you look real close on the hood you see a slight line. They said cause it is silver it is the best color to hind the line and it blends in. It took them 10 hers to do the install. They walked me thru the whole process. This is something I would never attempt. Even being an ex mechanic. The process is an ordeal and the conditions have to be perfect meaning no dust or particles in the air. They said it will show up thru the material. Doing my homework I have seen that the 3M product is the best. The installer also gave me a 5 year warranty. I am ecstatic with the results. They were doing a GTR and a R style Jag were also at there shop. Biggest thing in my opinion was we are paying big bucks for these srt's so to me 1200 in nothing to guarantee protect, especially with the winter we just went thru.
