I have no idea, but I wanted to recommend against Roadblock, which is the clear bra offered by IRA Motorgroup (scattered around New England). I have no desire to cast aspersions on IRA, but the product appears to have a delamination problem, as I have no less than ten points where air bubbles have appeared in the 6 weeks I've had the car.
It's not a subject I know a lot about, so I can't say if this is application error or a crap product, but I'd avoid it.

I have a detail shop in Burlington and have a great clear-bra installer that does all my work. I get a discount and would be glad to pass it on to you. I have been using the same company for 7 years no without any problems.

Drop me a PM or send me an e-mail at Rickrack79@hotmail.com if you are interested.

I'm also interested. I checked the 3M website but only found one source. Any other clear bra installers in the Boston area? I'm in Woburn. Thanks.

Wheel Dynamix in Natick is the best shop I know of to do this. They did a great job on my GTR. Info:

Ask for Jeff, he is a great guy.

i want to do a full frontal wrap. you think wheel dynamix will be able to do it? and as for brands, are all of them the same or does it vary? and what about going to the dealer to put on a ventureshield? not a good idea?

Jeff did a custom wrap on my GTR. He hand cut the whole thing. he is the OEM guy for Lambo Boston and Aston Martin Boston. I think he can handle it. As for what you put on, you get what you pay for. The cheap stuff yellows with time and is not as durable.

No problem. Jeff is a great guy. He had done about 80% of the GTR's in New England.

Did you go through with having Wheel Dynamix install the car bra? If so, what were your impressions?

I'm thinking of having it done myself, and while Needham is inconvenient from Nashua I'd rather have it done right than regret it later.

update

I ended up using Jeff @ Wheel Dyanmix last summer. It looks great.

I had a problem w/ the bra after driving all winter (see http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=255518) and Jeff has been real helpful and has shipped me a bottle of cleaner/sealant for no cost.

He's a nice guy and real responsive to his customers.
