What is a Clear Bra

    A clear bra is a clear, urethane-based film applied to your vehicle so that it follows the contours of your vehicle’s forward-facing surfaces, including your headlights, to protect the paint from road debris.

The film forms a protective barrier between your vehicle and road debris.  In most cases it will cover as much, if not more, area than the old vinyl bras did. The Clear Bras we install today are designed to stay on your vehicle 24/7, giving you around-the-clock protection, unlike a vinyl bra that needs to be removed under certain conditions.

A Clear Bra is the modern replacement for those old black vinyl bras.

The clear bra protection film can be applied to any car, truck, motorcycle, boat, or RV to protect against rock chips, scratches, or abrasions. With proper care, the protective film remains nearly invisible, allowing the brilliance of your vehicle’s finish to shine through for years and years.

There are two basic types of kits available to have installed on your car, one is a pre-cut kit.  This is where a digital image is downloaded to a plotter, which is then cut specifically for the  year, make, and model of your car.


The other type of kit is a hand cut kit.   Uncut bulk film is applied to your car and the final design is cut on your car to the specific snap and area that you want covered.


Pre-cut kits are usually the cheapest and the least invasive type of a clear bra.


Hand cut kits are usually more expensive and take more time, plus it requires a great deal of skill on the part of the installer to avoid leaving cut marks on your vehicle.

New developments in software allow us to make semi-custom pre-cut kits which allow us to wrap edges and make minor adjustments in kit designs.

While film warranties vary from manufacture to manufacture, over the years we have found that the life expectancy of most films in the hands of consumers is between 4-6 years. While the actual film may last longer than that, the aesthetic value of the film starts to degrade slightly over that length of time.

“TJ Has been doing this for quite a while and his experience definitely sets him apart.  He has a number of YouTube videos where he demonstrates his craft and talks about paint protection film.  I had him install protection film on my headlights and across the top of the bumper and it came out flawless.  He does great work at a fair price.  If you’re looking for paint protection, definitely hit up TJ for a quote.  You won’t be sorry.”

” I got my clear bra installed here.  TJ does this from his garage and is very professional about his work.  I recommend him for your clear bra installations.  He also cuts the laminate so he will be doing my front spoiler.”
