Clear Bra Paint Protection

Paint Protection Film aka “Clear Bra”

Congratulations! You bought a new car, you spent a lot of money on it, and you want it to look like new as long as you can. There are rocks, bird droppings, tree sap,  people with cars and trucks that can damage your amazing new car, and so many other things that can damage your precious paint job! You want to drive your car like normal but you’re scared of damage that can happen so park your car at the very end of the parking lot where no one else parks. So, what do you do?

The Solution: Paint Protection film aka “Clear Bra” will protect your car from all those terrible things you encounter daily when you actually drive your vehicle. What’s the point in buying your favorite car if you’re not going to use it? Clear bra is a clear, thick film that covers your paint provides a sacrificial shield between it and rock chips, deep scratches and stains that could reach into your clear coat. This will permanently protect your vehicle, so you don’t have to worry because the clear bra will protect you! We can remove and replace the film at any time without incurring any damage to your beautiful new factory OEM paint underneath! There is no better solution for preventing damage to your paint than 3M or XPEL Paint Protection Film.

Clear Bra is most commonly applied to the front end of the car, which is where most paint damage occurs, but it can also be applied to other individual impact areas like trunk ledges, headlights, door sills, door edges, and rocker panels; which can all experience paint finish damage.

XPEL ULTIMATE (BEST)

XPEL’s Ultimate Paint Protection Film combines best-in-class durability and clarity not previously available in the market. With its very low surface energy, XPEL ULTIMATE sheds contaminants that would otherwise stain or yellow conventional films. In addition, the clear coat employs special elastomeric polymers that “heal” over time eliminating swirl marks and other fine scratches without having to do anything. This product carries a 10 year warranty* against, yellowing, cracking, peeling, staining, and hazing, and reimburses both film and labor in the unlikely event of a failure. XPEL ULTIMATE is truly the most revolutionary Paint Protection Film ever invented!

3M SCOTCHGARD (BETTER)

3M Scotchgard is an 8 mil thick film that installs with slight orange peel due to its clear-coat. That means you can treat it like you treat your paint. 3M Scotchgard does not require ongoing maintenance. However because 3M Scotchgard is not manufactured 60” wide, in many cases you can not have full hood coverage without a seam. It is warrantied* for labor and material by 3M Company for five (5) years.

SUNTEK FILM (BETTER)

SunTek PPF-C offers breakthrough technology for paint protection applications. Features and benefits include invisible protection from damage caused by rocks, salt, insects, and other road debris, a proprietary, self healing top-coat formulation that is scratch, crack and stain
resistant with either a high-gloss or a matte finish, superior optical clarity and easy installation with increased longevity. It is warrantied for labor and material by SunTek for five (5) years.

3M VENTURESHIELD (GOOD)

3M VentureShield is an 8 mil thick top-coated paint protection film that installs smooth, without any orange peel, giving your car a glossy look. Because it is not clear-coated, 3M VentureShield requires ongoing cleaning to maintain its clear and glossy appearance. It is warrantied* for material only by 3M Company for five (5) years, but not against yellowing.
