All of the car, truck, SUV, van and mini van bras we offer are custom-made to precisely fit your year, make, model and sub-model. Our expertly-designed bras allow complete access under your hood, unobstructed use of your pop-up headlights and full function of your factory fog or driving lights.
In fact, some of our car bras are made-to-order at the factory, where they're expertly-sewn to the precise measurements, lines and curves of your vehicle. The result with these custom original car bras is a skin-tight protector for your sensitive paint.
Custom fitting is an important feature of a car bra. If a car bra doesn't fit properly, bubbling or flapping can occur, which may damage your vehicle's finish. We only offer fully-customized car bras for this reason.
Because each bra we feature is custom-designed, they will attach to each individual car, truck, SUV, van or minivan in a different way for a precise fit. Generally, each car bra uses vinyl-coated fasteners or hooks to latch onto your hood and wheel well. These hooks are soft and won't scratch or otherwise mark your paint. Some car bras may also incorporate Velcro fasteners in their mounting system.
The first time you put your bra on your vehicle, it may take up to 20 minutes or longer to install. Once you get some practice, though, putting your bra on or taking your bra off your vehicle will get faster-possibly down to just a few minutes.
Because of the heavy-duty vinyl materials used in your car bra's construction and the custom-fitted design, the fit will be somewhat tight at first. It's best to install your bra on a warm day, or leave your bra out in the sun for about 20 minutes before installing. This leaves the material more pliable for stretching over your ride.
If you're installing on a cold or cloudy day, a simple home hair dryer can heat-up the vinyl for extra flexibility, reducing your stretching strain.
Car bras and car masks are exactly the same product. Some manufacturers and stores use the term car bra, others use the term car mask. Car bra is the more commonly used name for the product, and the name we use.
Each of the bras we offer is made of durable vinyl. Our all-weather car bras have micro-perforated vinyl, making the car bra more breathable. If your all-weather car bra gets wet, these tiny holes in the bra's exterior allow trapped moisture to evaporate. Because of these holes, all-weather car bras will dry as you drive.
Original car bras are not micro-perforated. They can still be driven in the rain, but should be removed and allowed to dry before reinstallation.
Generally, wet car bras should be removed and allowed to dry before reinstallation. A wet car bra left on the vehicle may trap water between the bra and your paint, causing the bra to mold or mildew after prolonged saturation. Allowing your car bra to dry is part of proper bra care.
Some of the car bras we offer are all-weather car bras, made for use in any weather condition. These bras are made of a breathable vinyl that allows your car bra to dry-out while you drive. For the most part, they can be left on the vehicle when wet.
However, all-weather bras can also mold or mildew if they remain installed wet and not driven for a prolonged period of time. Removing a wet all-weather car bra is recommended if you don't plan on driving your car for a couple of days.
Rain and other wetness won't ruin your car bra or paint if the bra is removed and allowed to dry before reinstallation. You should only install your car bra when both your bra and your vehicle are dry.
Washing your vehicle with your car bra installed is generally not recommended. It is possible to wash your vehicle while leaving your all-weather car bra installed, as long as you have time to drive around and allow your bra to dry.
Most manufacturers recommend removing your car bra when washing your vehicle. This is the best way to be sure no road dust or dirt is trapped between your bra and your vehicle. It's also a perfect time to clean the underside of your car bra. Trapped dirt and dust between your bra and your vehicle could be harmful to your paint.
Your car bra can be cleaned with any water-soluble detergent and warm water. For removing tougher stains, like road tar or bug splatters, use any vinyl cleaner that's not silicone-based. Silicone-based cleaners can damage the UV coating on your car bra.
The underside of your car bra can be cleaned of dust and dirt with a good shaking out. Always hand-clean your bra-never machine wash a car bra.
The only difference between black finish car bras and carbon fiber finish car bras is the way they look. Carbon fiber finish car bras have an imprint in the vinyl for a 3-D woven pattern look. Carbon Fiber looks are one of the hottest trends in automotive design. This finish gives a sleek, high-tech look to today's cars.
Both black finish car bras and carbon fiber finish car bras are crafted from the same durable vinyl and offer identical premium protection.
Each car bra we feature is custom-designed for a precision fit for your vehicle. The best way to get a perfect fit is to order the right year, make, model and sub-model car bra. If you are having trouble figuring out which year, make, model and sub-model you own, please consult your owner's manual.
