I'm wondering if anybody else has discoloration to the lower-body fender flare just in FRONT of the rear wheels(can't figure out why because road-splash shouldn't be a problem THERE,and no other areas in back of the wheel-wells or lower body are like that),...mine has it on both sides of the car.....looks like the paint has turned slightly(but noticably)' milky-looking'.

That would be referred to as "road rash" Happens to a lot of cars..and Bonnies for that matter. I've got it and I know a lot of others have had it. I'd sand it down smooth and repaint it. They also make a clear protective film for places like that prone to being damaged by road debris. Here'* a website for some info http://www.shieldpro.com I'm going to invest in that stuff after I refinish my road rash.

For those who hate bras...this clear film is also great for hoods and VERY durable (and virtually invisible)

BTW, GTP2SSEi...where in Upstate NY are you?...I'm in Syracuse.

Has anybody tried the clear bra. A couple of people that I know used this on their cars and worked pretty good. Sincec it is clear it wont discolor the paint underneath it. You can even wax the cover, wash it, take it through the car wash & wont affect it in any way.

.....not really sure if it'* roadrash,....it'* not chipped up at all,just milky looking,like the clear-coat has 'broken down',and in only two specific spots,in front of both the rear wheel wells,in a trianguar area(where the lower fender-flares protrudes out)...strange place on the car,as NOplace else on the body is like that .....I've heard of the 3M Shieldpro....sounds like it could be the way to go...or else get the areas re-sprayed and re-cleared every couple of years.......thanks!
btw,I live about 50 miles NW of Albany,close to the 30 mile long,3-4 mile wide,Great Sacandaga Lake(a haven for Summer boaters and Winter snowmobilers)
Regards,Bill

Unless there are extreme conditions or pre-existing condition that are unnoticable i still think a week is a lil extreme. But i digress, there seem to be quite a few people with these on the 92-99 model hoods and none of them have problems. I think it might be related to the shape, and angle of the 2000+ hood. It'* a very gradual curve, which seems more susceptible to this then the older style.
