Default Half Bra

Have you all or any seen a Monte wearing half bra?
I didn't want the hood section messing up my new hood as I wait for new bumper.
What you guys think of the look lol kinda like a push-up bra

Cool

Looks cool that way. I have never been fond of them cause the ones I usually see are flopping in the wind while driving. But I imagine they protect the front end.

Thanks, but they advertise as protection but tend to cause their own damage, in my case I think bro-n-law got it to hide the bumper as cheaper than the new bumper (faster too)
My new bumper is on order and will take the car over for install, same guy that got me the hood
My HP mod was slowed so I decided to fix the looks

That's very different and I've never seen that before. I am also not a fan of any bras though as they tend to rub the paint and do more damage then what a little stone would. If the bumper is damaged bad thougg this is a nice cover up fix for now for sure!

Yes, the bumper is terrible and the bra is hiding it but not for much longer
it does look cool with extra black, and see many new cars coming out with black bumpers ... I can plasti-dip later, or even better I just learned a week ago that there is wrap 60 miles away

IMO a bra looks outdated nowadays. Quality transparent vinyl provides most of the same protection, is dirt cheap, and is virtually invisible.

The bra is coming off as soon as new bumper goes on. Where can I learn more about the transparent vinyl?

Google 3m clear bra or search it on amazon. There are obviously a ton of other manufacturers, but they're the only one I've used personally. I'd be careful getting super cheap stuff since you want stuff that isn't going to destroy the paint while it's on there.

It's just clear vinyl that you put over the front end of the car and is virtually invisible. You can make it completely invisible if you end the wrap on body seams, but most people like to do a strip across the front of the hood to help with rock chips (and don't want to pay for a huge sheet of it to cover the whole hood).

I did the front end of our Edge for about $100 and it has held up great over the last year. Certainly has collected some minor gouges from hard bugs and rocks, but the paint underneath looks perfect.
