Clear Bra protection ?

(1/4) > >>

CSX 4133:

My Cobra has the usual clear bra "spats" protection on the front of the rear fenders. I'm considering having the front nose at least protected as well, so has anyone had their Cobra covered with XPEL, 3M or a similar product?  Local installers to my area are reticent to install clear bra, I don't want a pre cut kit most offer.  I would prefer a custom applied one that minimizes seams and I want the edges rolled.
I'd like to hear others experiences with a particular product line (XPEL, 3M, etc) and what issues did you experience with the install or over all longevity of the clear bra.

  For them to custom install that on your Cobra, with all those Curves going in every direction, they will have to install a huge sheet of it and use a Razor Blade and cut it ON the Car.  You might look into Plasti-dip in the Spray Can and do it yourself.

CSX 4133:

I've used PlastiDip for temporary protection on a track car, but for long term use I'd prefer a film. The higher end film installers do cut the film on the car, but lift the edges away from the paint and then cut it. Or they use a knifeless tape underneath the film to make their cut lines. Thank you tesgt350 for your thoughts.

I like that Knifeless Tape.  I wonder if it will work with other Automotive Vinyl's.

Do research on the Ford GT forum. They all use film, XPEL being very popular.
