As it says really, do you leave it on even in the rain etc? Does it trash the paintwork?

I ask because I am fed up of the gritters and other cars throwing mud up and trashing my paintwork.

Worst thing you could put on a van with good paintwork ,
good for hiding rough paint tho lol.

We had a bra on the bora we have, and the bonnet had stone chips on the bra was used to cover them up but when I took it off the paint had bubbled where the chips had been. Luckily it's black and it was really hot for a couple of days so they dried up. Needless to say I don't use any bras any more!!

We kept the bonnet bra on our t4 for over a year and when we took it of the paintwork was fine, talking to a few people about bras and it seems to be original paintwork is fine, but if youve had the bonnet resprayed they seem to react.

After reading about water collecting along the lower edge where it's folded under the bonnet, I punched a few discreet holes in the material to let it drain. Seems fine so far.

I like'em anyway.
