Corvette Clear Bra – Is it Worth it?
If you’re like most Corvette owners, you love your ride. Nothing beats driving down the highway watching the sunset paint brilliant colors on the Superstition Mountains. But no matter how careful you are, stray rocks, dust, and the occasional tumbleweed will scratch your paint. Luckily, you can protect that precious paint job with a Corvette clear bra, but should you? For some drivers, the thought of adding any extra modification is just not worth the expense. Here’s what you need to know.
Film Won’t Make Your Car Invincible
Corvette paint protection film is designed to act as a barrier between your car’s paint job and those flying rocks and debris kicked up off the road. Instead of chipping and scratching the paint, those hazards scratch your Corvette clear bra. That said, it won’t make your car invincible. If you’re not planning on driving the car much, the film might not be the best investment for your ride. But if you’re driving the car regularly or even use it as your daily commuter, the paint protection film is an invaluable improvement.
Protects Against Fading
The Arizona sun is especially harsh for cars parked in uncovered lots and driveways. Over time, it can damage your paint job and make your car look older than it really is. Worse, it makes the paint more susceptible to scratching, chipping, and bubbling up. Corvette paint protection film helps reduce the impact the sun has on your paint job. This means your car will look newer longer.
It Won’t Detract from the Look of the Car
Older Corvette clear bras used to yellow after a few years, leaving the nose of your car looking dingy no matter how clean it was. Modern films are almost completely clear. Unless you know to look for it, you won’t know it’s there. Even better, it won’t interfere with how you care for your car. Wash, wax, and polish the hood as normal. Keep in mind, you will need to wash and maintain the car regularly. Otherwise, the paint protection film won’t do you any good.
Is It Worth It?
