A clear bra would force you to take it off every time you wash it, because dirt would get trapped in there. A better (and a lot less noticable) option would be to have the 3M's vinyl paint protection applied. It will keep rock chips from happening and you can hardly tell its there. The shop I used to work for did window tinting and the paint protection. I have it on the back of my mirrors and on the hood about 2" back past the roundel. Make sure to have any current rock chips fixed before hand though. They will show through.
Thanks Da Bull. I am having the front end touched and the hood stripped, primed and repainted. I am assuming that paint protection must be reapplied? What is the difference between 3Ms paint protection and stongard? Thanks for the link.
the cheaper stuff will turn a hint of yellow after the sun bakes on it for a few years. Wait for about a month or so to make sure its REALLY cured before applying this. Its very close to a vinyl sticker thats a little strechy. Its pretty easy to install.

huh? a clearbra for the headlights or a clearbra for the front end of your car? two different things...what are you refering to pamato? The sets you buy for your lenses like lamin-x and what not are awsome, prevent fading, cracking , and pitting.
The clear bra's are the exact same thing- but cut out for the front end. I don't see why you would have to remove it every single time. That would be impossible - they are not reusable. And it would get expensive to spent $200 everyweek to apply new clearbra's. www.stoneguard.com
