Colgan Bra for my SIM w/mirror protectors

Received my carbon fiber bra today. And before the haters get started, it is only used when I make trips, and is removed when its wet.

The mirror covers and bra were really easy to install, as all the ears were pre bent. Well worth the investment.





No chipped paint on my nose or mirrors.

I will be buying one also - haters; whatever, the front of my car will always look like new. I don't have a good clear bra installer in my area so this is it for me for now.

Go to colgancustom.com to order. Took a week. The wheels are grey super finish Boss motorsports 338 in 20x8.5 front and 20x10 rear. Factory tires fit fine as did the pressure sensors. Glas you like it.

The bra took me more time to get out of the box then to install it. About 5 minutes or less.

How does the Colgan mask "clip" onto the wheel wells, under hood, etc. I'm always worried about paint wear at clip on points.

Looks nice but, I don't want to cover up my mailslot. I'm contacting them to see if I can get one with a mailslot cutout.

I've had mine for nearly a year. I like it as it gives great protection, looks damn good and I could go on and on. To hell with haters! Its your car, do what you want to do with it.
I didn't get the carbon fiber one though tempted. I just didn't know how it would look though I was thinking it was just the way it was embossed over the leather like grain that I have on mine. Still its all about protection. I get a lot of compliments on it and I for one rather had spent the $135 for the nose and mirror covers then $1500 minimum for the 3M film. I'm all about doing as many mods as possible. I was able to do a whole lot more with that money.

There is a bungee type cord in the outer ring and a velcro strap underneath to tighten it down.

Are your rear tires smaller than the fronts, or is it just a camera trick? Looks like you're sporting 18s rear and 20s front. Just curious.

Let the haters hate. I paid about $800 for my full clear bra, and while it has saved my paint from rock chips I have bug gut damage in the clear bra that I can't polish out. I had bras similar to the Colgan on my 73 Corvette and an 82 RX-7, that took me about 10 minutes to mount properly, but at least I could scrub them with a brush when washing and get the bug guts off. I've tried the PC and lots of polishing on the clear bra, and still can't get the gut damage completely out.
