OK guys, I need some opinions. I ordered a new C6 and I'm considering a "3M Clear Bra".
First of all, are they worth the price? Does the film stay on even with a sharp water spray? Would you do it yourself or pay someone to install? Is there a local source in the Detroit area? What is the going price? If you own one, would you do it again?
Thanks in advance. :)

Clear Bra

I have a 2005 vert and clear bra was one of the first mods. I can play the radioand ends my expertise, so I had it done. Cost was 450 and he even gave me a couple of strips on the trunk to prevent dings when loading and unloading. Yes I would do it again. And nothing has come off to date.:cool

Hey C Dogg,

Provide some details, pictures, and feedback. I've been thinking about it also.

This could still turn out to be an interesting post. I prefer the the black contrast, but thats me.

3M Clear Bra on new paint

I'm going to have one of these installed as well. 24 inch hood cover, the complete front end and chin spoiler, rocker panels and door handle recesses- all for about $1,000.

I'm concerned however about putting this on the car so close to the time it was built. I took delivery this past Saturday 5/5 and the car was built a week ago on 5/1. I'm tentatively gong to get it done on 5/17.

Anyone out there know if there's an issue with putting this stuff on such a new vehicle? Does the paint need to be cured for more than 2 weeks?

I also was told by the dealer not to get the 3M film on the headlights as the heat from the headlights causes the 3M film to yellow/peel off.
Anyone out there with insight on this issue??
