Where to find Camaro bra.

I need to find a bra for the new camaro. Not a clear one. And I don't want it sticking to the car. Help? Clear bra is a good idea for not just cars

whats wrong with the clear bra? the newer ones out there are much improved from the old ones; no yellowing, paint under the bra fades evenly with the rest of the car, prevents annoying rock chips

The clear bra does have a tendency to "Dull" especially over time. It is softer than paint, being that it is a vinyl material. It is a choice, slight dullness or many little chips. There is not clear cut decision. I plan on putting it just in KEY Spots. Very flat surfaces in front and on rear quarter flares, by the gills.....Maybe the headlights too!.

A clear bra done right will look good for years! Just clay bar and wax like normal paint, if the bra goes to crap, remove it and install a new one... It's just like vynl stripes only the light actually hits the paint (fading evenly).

Clear bra a way better option than covering up the front with black fabric that holds water, dirt etc. to the paint and rubs it in! Remove the bra and the paint looks like crap and doesn't match the rest of the car...

Colgan makes the best traditional style bras. I have used one on my 1996 Impala SS show car for 13 years with no problems. They are not available yet for the 2010 Camaro, but should be soon.

I am with Gib I also have the Colgan bra for my 96 Impala SS, 2000 Camaro, 2001 Z/28, and my 2007 Suburban.

The undersides are nice and soft and will not scratch the paint.

I had a Trans Am 1999 and 2002, the low nose and front fascia had loads of pit marks. When I bought my 2004 G35 coupe I had the clear bra put on, and it worked wonderful. The G was black as is my 2010 2SS, and most of the time no one ever knew it was there unless it was pointed out. Not one pit/rock mark when I traded it in. I located a clear bra place in Houston that said there are a couple of different packages, depending on the coverage you want it was around 300.00. It will be my next add on after tint and alarm. Maybe the hood won't be so bad for rock chips because it doesn't point down like the TA and the G did, but I will go half way up with it probably anyway... Just my .02!!!
