[QUOTE=AVATT]Can anyone recommend a clear bra installer in the Chicago area? Also, have read some previous threads on opinoins of 3M v. Venture and others. Anybody have any updates on these products? Leads on purchasing clear bra's (Saw the venture product for sale at $400, w/o installation)? The dealer is offering ding, chip and other type protections for various fees and suggests that I therefore dont need a clear bra. The flaw in that logic, I think, is that although you may be covered and the "insurance" will pay for the cost of repair, you are still having your bumper resprayed which has to effect value. The clear bra may avoid that necessity.
I just had the 3M product installed last week. I wasn't sure if I would like it but surprise, it looks okay. I got hit hard by a stone just above the light on Monday, it left a nasty scar in the 3M material which is white (not good), but it never even scratched the finish.
I do not want my car repainted, so for me the clear bra is the only way to go. If it gets dinged up I'll just have them replace the bad section every now and then.
