Jaws79 said: The guy that just painted my car recommends against them. There is not only the chafing of the paint but also that if moisture gets under the bra it will stain your paint. I won't use them.
the man knows his stuff. Besides why have this on to protect (not) the car for someone in the future? Enjoy your car, let the museums do the saving.
When I had my car painted 10 years ago the painter recommended I replace the front bumper cover because it was slightly wavy. (Back had a huge crack in it, I had to replace that one) But money was tighter back then and I decided against it. Turns out that might have been a good decision because a few years later I asked a friend to test drive it for me and he bumped it against a wall and cracked it. So now I use the mini mask that Mid America sells (that's the only vendor I've seen that has them) - it covers up the crack AND the waves but nothing else. You can open the hood and headlights without doing a thing to the mask and it doesn't flap at high speeds. I don't know why the other vendors don't sell them - to me it's that perfect happy place between hippy chick and full underwire!

I used a bra on my '94 when Norsky and I went to Bend OR. I will never use one again. It was securely fastened to the front end and I still got grit under it resulting in vertical scratches all along the front bumper. I was able to polish most of them out. Yes, Tux, the Admiral has multiple wax coatings which make cleaning bugs off after long road trips fairly easy.
There is no substitute for low end torque!
