I recently purchased a Bullitt and am concerned with protecting the front-end from stone chips e.t.c.

What do you think about a bra to protect the front-end?

I have to agree with War_Hawk. I saw that happen on my son's car. You can't leave a bra on full time. Just use it when driving on the interstate. Personally, I can't deal with taking it on and off all the time and after it rains. That's why I went with the StonGard product. Costs more in money but you save it in aggrevation.

If the car is going to be driven in the Paris/Dakar with all that dirt getting under the cover, then yep.... it'll eat up the paint.

But considering I drive my car everyday, about 100 miles round-trip at 70 to 80 mph, I'll use a bra.

I've never seen Stongard applied perfectly and any little wrinkles will be magnified on a black car.

A bra will only cause paint damage if you don't remove it if it gets wet or if it's put it on a dirty car. If there's paint damage, it wasn't used correctly. Colgan has been making (the best) bras on the market since 1961!! We've used and sold Colgan bras since the 80's. If having to take the bra off if it gets wet is too much, use the clear vinyl. My question is what do you do when it gets chipped? Do you replace that section again and again?$$

I have to agree that using a bra works if not leaving it on all the time. Any one who lives in Florida or has visited during love bug season I think would have to agree that a bra is a must!!!

Michael, StonGard has a warranty. In the unlikely event the paint gets chipped they will repair the damage up to $1000 and replace the damaged StonGard. Check this out...

John- That's a good deal. I wasn't knocking the Stone Guard at all. I like the idea, especially the headlight covers. I've just never looked at their website to find out. My point was when someone says a bra will damage the paint, it should be followed by "when you don't use it correctly".
