Default Long Trip - Need suggestions soon!

Im going on a long trip with the Bonny next thursday (13 hours to boston to be exact)

I was seriously debating getting a bra for the trip to protect her new finish. It would be taken off nightly and for local trips.

If you all think its a good idea then ineed a 92-95 style bra cheap if anyones willing to sell one, if not where can i get one?

Point #2

Mudflaps- good idea? keep tar and crap off while not try to "look hot" necessarily

Does anyone around here have those leftover, if not where to get them?


Thanks fellas!

I'd do the bra for trips, And I'm stealing that idea.

AutoZone has some mudflaps by the steering wheel covers. BonneMeMN has ones that say Pontiac on them, If you want those, Find out where he got them.

If you need a stop off (dinner, whatever) before you get to Boston, holler....I'm right on the way. We could probably convince Randy to join in.

At that point you'd be in the home stretch with two hours to go.

i would recommend the mudflaps. Remember our cars have wide tires, most of the flaps that are made for cars are too small for us. I have size 2 on my car and wouldnt have anything else

And a question for our trim specialist.... I think it could be considered trim related.

Did any of the bonnies come with flaps or were these strictly dealer add-on?

the only thing that wuld be considered a flap is the 92-95 SSE/SSEi rockermouldings and rear bumper trim, they come pretty far down i think to act as kinda protection...but.....no bonne ever came with actual plastic/rubber flaps from the factory
