Clear Bra-Why it is MUST HAVE

Made a trip to Steamboat Springs, CO the other night, and on the way back, the wind was not blowing, it was about dusk, 69 degree's and the bug hatch was out of a Speilberg movie! Had to stop and clean the windshield twice. The rake of the front is a bug magnet! Take a look. They all came off relatively easy with some water soaking fo a bit, then Meguires car wash (and a couple of rags!). I had the body shop place window screen material in front of the radiator when the front clip was off for the GFX install, and boy was that a life saver!!
If not for the bra, it would have been a mess!

Reminds me of when I lived in N. Dakota...in the summer your car looked just like that from all the mosquitoes! Town was about 15 miles away and when you rolled in you went straight to the power washer to clean the bugs/guts/blood from the front of the car!!

But hey....always heard it was a great place to raise a family! *Sarcasm!!!*
