#94 of 132 Cost of Bra or coating vs repainting
May 12, 2005 (3:28 pm)
This may be the wrong question - but how does the cost of having paint chipping on the nose of your car professionally retouched every year or so compare to the cost of a bra or a coating?
I think that (quite often) the bra's and coatings are uglier than the problems they're supposed to prevent. You can't see paint chips from 10 feet away, but you're sure going to see that bra.
Sort of like when Grandma put plastic covers on the leather sofa she got.

You'd be surprised at how invisible the 3M clear plastic coating is.
I doubt you could see it from 10 feet away. 2-3 feet, yes; 10 feet, you have pretty darn good eyesight. And even at 2-3 feet, I'd doubt you would notice it unless you were looking for it.
The clear plastic coatings are the way to go in my opinion. Once you have to touch up or repaint a hood, your value will decrease much more than the cost of the coating.

#99 of 132 Bra for Matrix
May 28, 2005 (9:18 pm)
I am thinking about getting a bra to protect the front of my Matrix from all the bugs and small rocks from the freeway. Does any one have any advise on where to get one and IF I should get one? I also read that it can actually damage the paint longterm, any recommendation?

I had one on my 2001 Chev Tahoe for the last 4 years - it was GREAT. However, don't let dead bugs sit on bake - they slightly ate into the film when left for a month one summer.

Was it a name brand film, like the 3M stuff or StonGard?
Anyone with longer term experience with film, have you noticed any yellowing of the product?
#102 of 132 Bug Guards

I purchased the bug guard made by Lund.....I didn't think it was very well made and looked kind of cheesy. I returned it and bought the Bug Deflector II......this one looks great and was easy to install....paid $40 new.
