Yeah... one of the first mods i be doing is a Clear Bra on the Front only, includeing the fenders and mirrors.... rock chips,Big juicy bugs..... depending on who installs (or DIY) it u can get a bad job or good job.... most of the time it has to be kept clean from dirt getting under the bra

I was thinking Matte Black. With the Five Axis kit. Should be awesome if I can afford it.

Hahaha, $1000+ Wraps? No Thank you. I'd rather this...



And BTW for those of you who will perhaps get ripped off by the dealer for some 3M Car wrap (Clear Plasti Dip):

Can you get that stuff in gloss white? I am actually thinking about trying it on my FG front lip because if I do not like the look I can peel it off.

Would love to see the results of spraying clear plastidip on a car, just not mine. I have my doubts.

I don't recommend this, but I would do some local research on who does best car wrap/clear bra and yes I had a clear bra on before for years and it held up well against rock chips and bad winter/salt days... Don't listen to non-useful comments from above.

Someone on Nasioc did this...It looks like a rattle can paint job. Plus who is going to buy a 25K car to just turn around and spray some plastic dip on it. Do it right or dont do anything.

A friend and I recently plastidip sprayed his Mazdaspeed wheels. They came out great. You don't get the matt finish inconsistencies like you do with flat black paint. Also, if you mess up an area, you just peel it off and re-apply.

Good call sir! I've experienced this product quite numerous of times

easy to apply and easy to remove, best part is I can switch colors every week if I was up to it :happy0180:

The shop i work at is going to start a wrapping service so I might do parts of my car. Nothing crazy probably just interior parts. They do great work though, we wrapped a aston martin in flat gray, sooo nice.
