Applying clear bra over '70 Boss 302 side decals.
« on: February 04, 2022, 01:18:59 PM »

My question is has anyone applied clear bra over their 69-70 side decals on their Boss 302. It's been implied that one can without any issues, while others comment it can leave a raised bubble where the two materials cross over right along the two edges due to the thickness. Anyone have an experiences either way with clear bra over decals. Thank you for any input.

can't answer directly about it on a B302.....however a buddy just had his 911 wrapped with the clear film and it was done over the rocker side stripes with no problem.....you run you hand over the stripes and its smooth feeling slight bump.....

the new films are on million dollar supercars with exotic paint.......they have come a long way

you can even apply the film on your windshield to avoid rock chips

Thank you for your reply, I'm applying Xpel to those areas most vulnerable to rock chips.

i wouldn't be concerned with applying it, however removing it would be a greater concern

After watching numerous videos and getting a little first hand instruction I felt I was ready for applying clear bra over my car. Removing it, when the time comes, will involve judicious use of a heat gun and careful pulling.

The clear bra I chose is Xpel self healing type vinyl. Amazingly after getting used to the application process I'm finding it goes on easily if you follow certain guide lines.
It's virtually invisible once applied except for seam lines, and after applying I applied a sealant to protect the film surface prior to applying a wax. I'm very pleased with the results.

awesome.......I was at SEMA 3 years ago and watched 3M do a PAGANI..........could not find or see the seams.......also they make a film for windshield so if you like rallys or drive on freeways great way to prevent rock chips or even broken windshield
