Would You Clear Bra Your Entire Car..?

.. in order to prevent swirl marks on a darker paint color. (esp. black)?

I did the entire car...and it's so great not to have to worry about scratches or rocks ....

And we can't see it without putting the nose on!!

It's expensive, but on a 70K€ car.....it's a "must have" i believe....

I have heard of some exotic cars having the whole car covered.....but its a custom install and very pricey!

um no... i did front only because...

1)this is not a supercar
2)clear bras get swirl marks too (but they are much better at bouncing off rocks without damaging paint than paint alone)
