Question 3m clear bra $

I know this probably has been discussed but need help? I have an appointment to have a 3m bear bra this week on the front clip and 14" up the hood and front fenders as well as the twoback of the side mirrors. Does anyone know what this should be costing price range before I go and find its to high and could have found a better package.

totally depends on the installer. I've seen $250 for minor stuff, or as low as $700 for the full car

if your shopping for film installed, like buying a cheap tire, your not going to be happy with the outcome. kit fitment is also key. your in texas, google xpel, and goto one of their dealers for great fitting kits.

use your search kung-foo to find info on the materials used at the shop of your choice. amount of sun, amount of expected bugs, color of car, how often you wash it, etc,; will play a role in deciding which film to use. FYI, i am a pro installer of 15 years, (23 years altogether between paint film, tint, and graphics.) and no, i am not going to tell you what to do or quote prices.

Yea the 3M films are the best. All cars in the future will just be wrapped in it in a printed form (skin wrap). I predict... less than 10 years. With the car just painted mostly black or white as a base and 3m film on top. Printed.

When that happens, I'm ordering a leopard print!

Yeah, the 3rd gen 3M skin is the best right now. No more orange peel, and its nice and glossy. With a good installer, you'll never know you have it on.

FAF, that coverage sounds great as a min. Remember though, with 14" up the hood, you will notice a line in the sun. Its not that bad, but if you're a perfectionist, it'll piss you off. It would me... Either get the whole hood done seemless, or get the full car done. You'll never regret getting the full car done. I've seen pics of people backing up into telephone poles with the 3M stuff on it, and coming out with just a minor dent and 'perfect' paint still. Dents are easy to manipulate, color matching scratches... Not so much.

God I really hope not. There is no finish on that stuff compared to a nice paint and clear coat.

"Dear Bryan,

Thanks for the inquiry. The following is your quote for your 10 Chevy

All pricing includes labor and materials. I am a mobile service and
