custom job for now probably, any reputable place should be able to put and stretch the pieces i am not sure if the Xpel website list the custom machined cuts yet or not

I had an XPEL clear bra put on mine last week. I have bubbles on my lower front bumper due to the angles; I have already taken it back once and have to go in again. The pictures below are from two different times.

That's not what I would expect!
Guess I will not be getting a clear bra!

Those bubbles are where the installer did not heat the film down. The C7 is a much easier car to install film on than the C6. Find a good installer and you wont have any issues.

Are you looking to buy one for a self install or are you looking to get one installed? We have had the kits for a while now.

I had one installed last week by speed film Roswell Ga. X-pel David cuts his patterns from roll stock, and does a great job

Has anyone had the Xpel installed while getting museum delivery?

It is an option I am considering, and while more expensive it appears, at least I'll have some protection on the car for the drive home, especially this time of year.

GM will be releasing a clear bra product for the C7 available as a Genuine Corvette Accessory (GCA) product and it will be available via the dealer network. You will likely be able to find it through the GM Accessory Zone website when available.

I had a 1/4 clear bra installed at my dealership. It covers the nose of the Stingray (up to the hood).

Had a clear bra put on about 2 weeks ago using the Xpel. Did front nose, 24" up on the hood, mirrors, and rocker panels. The installer did an flawless job.

I had museum delivery oct 21. At that time they were not able to do a clear bra, because they were too busy with deliveries. That may have now changed.

I used the official XPEL dealer in Houston. If they don't know who will.

Is 30 days a reasonable time to wait before installing xpel due to paint curing? Going to do front end wrap on AW.

My dealer uses a local installer who used a 3M product, I am very satisfied with it and these guys know what they are doing. 300 miles on vin #368 and so far no problems with my car that was in Nashville for four weeks. Mike
