Question Proven Clear Bra installer Denver/Boulder/FC?

Okay, I'm now officially shopping around for full front end clearbra and tint.

I have a quote from guys do great work, but I can't help but feel I'm not getting a competitive price. So I'm throwing it out there. Any recommendations?

My only stipuation: No 3M Ventureshield. Been there, done that, got the foggy orangepeely result. I'm looking for full front-end, mirrors, top of rear bumper.

To all the kind folks who sent PMs, thanks. I'm all set with vendors. If anyone's interested, I'll follow up with results.

I went with Clear Choice. They do great work, but it was a difficult decision because Auto Armor does fine work as well, and they're both nice operations. The decider was that Clear Choice had experience with a new film, the Suntek PPF, which is incredibly shiny. You can't really see there's a film on the car unless you get up really close.

I haven't seen anyone do a satisfactory job on that (and I don't think the black strip works, in the end), and AA didn't have any answers either. I didn't suggest the sanding method. What is the purpose of the dot matrix, except to make it impossible to tint?

After detailing. Car got pretty dirty in my ambition to get break-in miles behind me.

Cool

Actually, I've already posted some pics after the install in my

mods journal thread.

Close up on hood roundel. Clearbra is on hood and bumper cover piece between grilles:



Close up on black chrome side gill. Clearbra is to end of fender. Door does not have clearbra:



Wide shot showing full-hood, bumper, fender clearbra, and the 40% 3M Christalline tint on side windows:

I'm not sold on the cf spoiler. It's too small to make such a big deal out of it, and cf on yellow ends up being a big deal! But diffuser and splitter are certainly in the plans eventually. Right now I have to focus on the racecar.
