Default Different Idea for a Car Bra.

As most of you know I have some major paint problems with the front of my car. I am going to get a LeBra before I go back to school but I was doing some thinking on another idea. Would it be possible and look ok if you had the shape of the bra painted on the car with some of that truck bed liner. You wouldn't have to worry about the paint under the bra fading or mildewing and it would be extreamly strong and should hold up to mostly anything you threw at it. I am not worried about reselling the car or its value because I plan on driving it until it is dead.

Sorry, but I am not kidding at all. I guess I will take that as a NO from you.

Well, if you are looking at something that drastic, perhaps a molded shell made of teflon impregnated poly instead. Either black or body color painted. That spray-on bead liner is going to look all lumpy and black and will never look right.

I was thinking about the bumps, but I was thinking if it was done right the bumps could be minimized. I am not saying I am going to do this that is why it is in the Brainstorming forum.

I remember a few years back, some companies were coming out with "hard bras" for some cars. I don't know if they ever caught on or were even available for Bonnies.

As far as minimizing the bumps, you would either have to thin the spray so much that it would never set up or spend so much time sanding it, you might as well repaint the nose.

Yes it can be done and I have personally chased this for a full 4X4. It can be made very smooth. It can also be made removable. I have seen it on a new dodge ram as well and if you are able to smooth the edges it will look much better. A good shop will have no problem making it nice. Oh it also can be matched to your paint color.

The only problem is that it CAN chip. Then what do you do?
