Clearbra looks so scary going on! I could never get that stuff even with no bubbles.

This is something I know nothing about, I take it stone chips are a thing of the past. It looks a bitch to put on, are you doing it yourself or is it being professionally done?

So with a clear bra do you still need to adhere to the usual washing routine to avoid swirls or can you just wipe as you please?

Looking good.......mine is DONE.....only the 1/3 shield on the hood and front fenders....but you can hardly see it.....the tint turned out EXCELLENT...35% front and 5% rear..it looks SO much better now...I'll take some better pics once I wash it!

Did you have the windows tinted too...... $1800 for the full wrap is a great price...I was quoted a tad over $2k from Premier for the same thing....mine was a bargain basement $650....

no tint- mine was done an hour ago - the full hood and fenders look awesome - no lines at all - we even pulled the hood vents and reflectors off and tucked the film under it.

Doza designs is good he trained the guy from premier. looks awesome

You wax right over the top of the clear bra.....however I would be cautious with aggresive polishes-compounds on the clear bra.... it might scuff it up too much, since I'm guessing the clear bra is softer than paint clear coat...

However I have found the clear coat on my M3 is fairly soft....I had to remove some minor scratches and them came off VERY easy using mild polish and a random orbit buffer.....

Yeah thats the one by the airport. My friend got his IS-F clear braed there, so he recommended the place to me. Yeah full hood, full fenders, bumper, a-pillar, headlights, and some other areas.

x2 - just treat it like paint. this newer Venture film has a clear coat on it. the finished job looks great- I would post pics but there would be nothing to see.
i got
full hood wrapped
full front fenders wrapped
front bumper
headlights
full mirror wrap
top of rear bumper
