Telsa Model S with damage by contact with wall. Film was removed and replaced with no damage to paint.

I recently received a visit  from a concerned client who had bumped the side of his garage. TBH, I wasn’t sure if the paint was damaged or not. I slowly removed the film  and as the film came off,  so did the white paint scuff. The paint on this Tesla Model S was unscathed and a replacement piece was installed. This prevented a trip to a collision center and more importantly this beautiful Signature Red still has it’s original paint. While this is not the primary reason to install a clear bra it shows the protective properties and if it handles a garage wall, you know it can protect against rocks, sand and bugs.

How does a clear bra work?

A clear bra works by absorbing the energy from the particles impacting its surface, thus protecting the paint below. It acts as a barrier between your car and the flying debris on the roads you travel.  A basic clear bra application protects the front of the hood and bumper, but there are many other areas e to protect as well. Costly headlight assemblies, fog lights, mirror backs, door edges and door handle areas, rear bumper areas. Another popular option is  to cover  entire hood and  front bumper for max protection and no visible lines.

While it by no means makes your car’s finish invulnerable, it is highly effective at protecting against common road damage caused by sand, bugs, and debris. If it becomes damaged it can be removed and replaced, often with the paint underneath untouched.

Remember… Your paint is only original once.

It’s simple to safeguard your vehicles fresh paint from stone chips and highway debris by the installation of a clear bra paint protection film. A clear bra will keep your vehicle’s paint in show room condition and by doing so retain it’s value.

Protective film is definitely an accessory which will deliver protection for your vehicle’s front bumper, hood, fenders, mirrors, rockers as well as any other surface area imaginable.

Computer designed and machine cut, the clear bra is made to fit invisibly and properly for maximum protection. It is a barrier against highway hazards like  rocks and other flying debris on roads which can cause paint chips and bug acids which can permanently your cars paint.

An area that is commonly left out of the discussion is the bumper which is plastic and over time receives pitting damage.

While the film provides an important protective feature, it can be installed in areas that receive regular wear and tear. These areas include rocker panels, trunk openings and door sills to name a few.

Although there are many options like regular vinyl car bras on the market for ones vehicle, the one pointed out here will significantly help in providing you with calmness of mind with regards to your vehicles paint.

If you wish to sell your automobile someday, you have used a product that will likely provide you with highest dollar at selling or trade in time. You’ll in no way lose with the addition of protective film for your vehicle.

It is strongly suggested that you hire a professional to install paint protection film kits on your vehicle.

Clear Bra Protection Film

Rock chips and bug acids can really ruin the looks of your car as well as its value. You can prevent this damage to your vehicle by installing Clear Bra Paint Protection Film.

Paint protection film was originally developed by 3M, and has been used in military and commercial aviation for years.   After some refinements to the film which prevent yellowing, and a clear coat to add gloss, the film has  found it’s place in the automotive industry.

This rugged, yet invisible material is placed on cars, RV’s and motorcycles. Not only are these invisible car bras used to maintain the traditional area such as bumpers and hoods, because of the way it adheres, it can protect other areas of your car as well.

You can cover rocker panels, doors sills, door edges, door handle cups, trunk openings, and the list goes on. Any area that can be chipped or scratched can benefit from paint protection film.

Once it is installed, it is a very low maintenance product. Simply care for it in the same manner as you would your paint and it will look great for years.
