What do you need me to do?? Wax your car?? Or send you my bra? lol

Seriously though, before putting the bra on I would wax it with colour conditioner wax...this stuff does wonders, especially when you wax a small section them step back...HUGE difference. It looks like there'* fog on the rest of the car. Also, take the bra off and wash and wax everything there again.

I've never experienced a problem with my bra. That guy has been on there since the car was new in '92. I have removed it only once in that time to wash the inside. I have no idea why I have had no problems. The finish underneath is as colorful and shiny as the uncovered portion. The amazing thing is the thing has stretched a little over the years and actually flaps a little over 55 mph. Wouldn't you think that it would abraze the surface?

The only thing I do is spray some McGuires Quick Wax on a rag and wipe under the bra about every 2 months. I pay particular attention to the area where the edge of the bra meets the hood. I'll tell you true- in all the miles I've put on the Bonne the hood has only 3 detectable knicks from pebbles kicked up from the interstate. I believe that is due to the vertical air foils deflecting wind up and over the hood. Now the window; that'* another story.

My son put one on his red Mustang and the finish turned grey after about a month. He never got the finish back.

I think that surface imperfections in some clearcoat allow moisture to penetrate underneath and microscopically lift and bubble the clearcoat. Just my 5.7 cents worth!
