Default Spray on clear bra??? Check this out!

Below are links to products that are supposed to be sprayed on clear bras for paint protection.

Has anyone heard of, or had experience, with any of these?

I am going to give the duplicolor a try. I am tired of the PITA of installing a bra and taking it off after an interstate road trip.

A friend of mine used it after he picked up his car from the dealership, and had it removed and clear bra'd a few days afterwards.

Why not spray it on for the road trip and then just peel it off when you return?

That's some interesting stuff. I think we will see spray on car bras going mainstream before long.

Watch out for the Duplicolor rattlecan one. It probably works as claimed, but they don't claim it gives chip resistance. There isn't enough material in acouple of rattlecans to give real chip protection to the front of acar. The bras need to be thick compared to normal paint to give enough cushioning effect to work.

Use it on your side view mirrors to prevent rock chips.

"Clean surface with a wax and grease remover."

Stripping the wax and rewaxing would be a bit time consuming.

The Quick Peel looks like “Shrink Rap” and appears to thin to provide any real protection from stones. I’ll stick with my $650 clear bra install!

It's too bad they don't recommend a finished application thickness and give the sq ft of coverage for a qt or gallon. That does make it sound like maybe it's thin enough that they don't want to talk about it.

I still think it will evolve into something good. There are a lot more talented painters than there are clear bra installers.
