This Should Bug You!

This Should Bug You!

We know that a car bumped with speckled dead bugs on it looks nasty, BUT did you know it is also damaging to the car?  Those tiny bugs can damage the paint as long as they remain on the car.  How?  We’re glad you asked!

As insects decompose, they product certain enzymes intended to eat away the remaining carcass.  While these enzymes are busy breaking down the dead bugs, they are also breaking down the paint.  Now we didn’t tell you this just to bug you, (pun intended), we have the answer to this not so tiny paint protection problem.

Our Clear Bra Kit will protect your front bumper.  Our paint protection solution will not allow the enzymes to damage your paint, thereby saving money.   Visit our website for more information on:

Motorcycle Paint Chip Protection

Motorcycle Paint Chip Protection

The open road, scenic views and the absence of cell phones while riding makes the experience a pure pleasure.When you’re on two wheels cruising down the highway, one of the last things you are thinking about is economics. But eventually reality hits and taking a look at the economics involved with your motorcycle is something every rider does.

Motorcycles are economical when it comes to fuel. Motorcycle fuel economy varies greatly with both the engine displacement and the riding style. The average mid-size motorcycle gets between 35-50 mpg. Motorcycle maintenance can be expensive depending on where you go to have the bike serviced. Another economical consideration for motorcycles is insurance. The rates for motorcycle insurance can vary a lot, from one bike to another.

Where many of the above bike economics vary, Clear Bra motorcycle paint chip protection is always an economic bargain. It will protect and extend the life of your motorcycle. We cover and protect:

  • Mirrors
  • Headlights
  • Fairing
  • Fender
  • Fairing edge
  • V-section
  • Tank
  • Seat section

When it comes to something as important as your motorcycle, the reality is, you want it to last.

Calling All Corvette Owners

Calling All Corvette Owners

We all know that the Chevrolet Corvette is a sports car by a division of General Motors known as Chevrolet. The first model was designed in 1953 and since then there have been six generations produced.  It was named after the small, maneuverable warship called the “corvette”. What everyone might not know is that Astronaut Alan Shepard was a long time Corvette owner. So were Astronauts Gus Grissom and Gordon Cooper. It is said that in their Corvettes Shepard, Grissom and Cooper pulled each other on skis in the shallow waters of Florida beaches.

Why Protect Your Car Hood?

Clear Bra Kits – 3M Paint Protection Film

Think much about your car hood lately? A car hood usually consists of an inner layer for strength and an outer layer as a skin. Car hoods come in different sizes, design and styles. Some car hoods have sound-absorbing material which works to quiet the roar of the engine. Regardless of the features of the hood they all have the same function—for any front-engine vehicle. It proudly stands as the gateway to your engine. That in and of itself deserves some respect and paint finish protection!

Keeping your car hood in good shape will prolong the life of your car in terms of mileage and value. Since scrapes, chips and paint damage can happen so easily to your car hood, protect it with a clear bra kit. This protective film will do the following:

  • Cover the high-impact areas of your car
  • Protect against flying road debris
  • Keep your hood looking like new

Clear Bra Kit installations can and will vary depending on the installers skill set. Our Clear Bra Kits are designed to be installed with as much ease as possible. We offer both a wrapped edge kit for the leading edge of the hood and fenders as well as a non-wrapped edge kit.

It’s a Wrap!

hy Protect Your Car Hood?

According to, “wrap” means to “protect with coverings.” We like that definition because it quite succinctly describes what clear-bra kits do: they “protect” your car “with coverings.” In fact, they protect your vehicle—which for many of us is one of the two biggest investments we make—with 3M’s patented Ventureshield Paint Protection Film.

So… what areas of your car can be protected?

  • Hood: Rock chips are the most noticeable on the front of the hood, making it the most popular part of the car to protect.
  • Front bumper: The forward-facing painted surfaces of the bumper are constantly threatened by debris
  • Side mirrors: The mirrors catch a lot of damaging stones (and from time to time, a garage door!)
  • Headlights/Fog lights: Headlights are VERY expensive to replace.
  • Roof & A Pillar: The leading edge of the roof and A Pillar is at risk from high-flying debris.
  • Back bumper: The most commonly scratched area of a car is its rear bumper. Putting luggage, golf clubs, groceries, etc.  into the trunk are easy ways to damage your back bumper.
  • Door Cups: Long fingernails, rings, or keys can scratch up the paint around door handles.
  • Rocker Panels: The bottom section of the vehicle is a common area for rock and stone damage. We typically cover from wheel-well to wheel-well.

Keeping your vehicle protected is our focus. We specialize in manufacturing paint protection kits that will protect your motorcycles and cars. Shop our Clear Bra products for more information.

Debris on the Road!

Debris on the road
According to Wiki Answers, the United States has in excess of 230 million vehicles on the road today.
 The sheer volume of vehicles is a double-edged sword: first, 230 million vehicles create all kinds of debris on the road, and second, with so many vehicles out there it is difficult (and sometimes even impossible) to clean up the debris created. And it isn’t just rocks and dirt – debris can include plants, branches, leaves, sticks, twigs, nails, screws, glass, shards of plastic and metal, construction supplies, asphalt chips… well, you get the point.

Road debris is a hazard because it can cause damage to your vehicle. At highway speeds, even the smallest debris can be more than simply a nuisance – it can scratch and dent your car or motorcycle. IBIS World reports that the auto body shop industry’s revenue for 2011 was more than $36 billion dollars. Billion with a “B”! And if you can prevent some of that damage with a clear bra paint protection solution, thereby saving money on repair and maintenance bills, why not do it?

With a Clear Bra Kit you have a fighting chance to keep the body of your car preserved. You can protect your hood, front bumper, side mirrors, headlights, fog lights, roof, back bumper, door cups and rocker panels. So next time you head out on the road be aware of your surroundings and rest assured that with our Clear Bra Kit, you are protecting your investment and increasing the life of your vehicle.

What Customers Are Saying

“The typical bra you strap on can look tacky, stretch out and even worse, ruin your paint! I prefer a 3M Ventureshield paint protection film bra from Clear Bra Kits. I have applied the clear bra on pretty much every part of my car possible, which includes hood, headlights, roof, A-pillars and rear bumper. This is a great company to order from."
