Default Corvette ZR1 Expel Front End Bra

I'm taking delivery of a new ZR1 at the museum in a few weeks and driving back to Texas. Does anyone know of anyone in the area that can install 3m or Expel bra or is there anything I can put on temporarily until I get back home.

Might be best asked in the Regional section of the forums

might call the museum and ask them, they probably know all the installers in the area and can recommend.

This what I used to find the Xpel installer in Michigan.
Good luck!

while we're on the topic, I'm getting the front repainted. I'm told to wait 4 weeks before putting Xpel back on. I'll probably leave it in the gargage and rent cars till its ready for film.

Could I layer up the front with plain ole painters tape for the drive to the installer? short drive...30 minutes...interstate tho

Xpel has a product called tracwrap made specifically for this purpose. It's a temporary DIY wrap for track days or road trips

ahhhhh...sweet. I'll probably use that. Doesn't have to be pretty for the drive to his shop. I'll probably get some looks as in, "man, that looks like crap". LOL

If the NCM is still selling novistretch, they'll help you install one for the trip home.

Novistretch for the ride home, clear bra when you're home. I wouldn't want to rush an installer around the NCM.

Just get a Novastretch bra and drive home. Let your local Xpel installer do the job - that way if you have a problem it will be easier to get it fixed.
