How bad is the front of your car now? There have been some bad reports about the use of bra'* on bonnevilles but if you remove the bra when you wash the car and keep the area waxed you should be fine.

If I were you l wouldn't invest in a bra until the front of the car was pretty bad looking. Just an opinion.

The last car i put a bra on was my 1994 toyota camry and it had excellent paint. Well, i took the bra off a couple of years down the road because it was falling apart and to my grief it had rubbed an area of paint off almost in the shape of the bra. That is why i don't by them.

I have one on my car right now. It is covering up a fair amount or stone damage. If I were to take it off now there would be discoloration in my paint exactly where the bra was. Unless you have extensive damage I wouldn't get one.

Exactly what i'm talking about. that is what is keeping me from getting one on my 95 se because the paint is still in excellent condition.

It took mine about a year before it started to leave a mark. I've heard of it taking less than a week for it to leave a mark on some cars. Unless you want it on indefinetly I wouldn't try to put one on.
