Car bra installation is actually pretty easy. And, unlike the frat-boy one-handed bra-removal technique, car bra installation is not the stuff of legends. Whether it’s one of the classic full-coverage car bras, like a Colgan bra, or one of the new-style sport bras, like the LeBra car mask or the Covercraft bra, installation is basically the same.
Why You Need a Car Bra
First, you want to thoroughly clean the front of your car. Though modern bras have a super soft paint-friendly inner liner, they can still cause trapped grit and moisture to scuff your paint. Next, let the bra warm up in the sun before installation. This way, it gets stretchy and is more malleable when it’s time to stretch it over your front end. After that, just follow the manufacturer’s instructions as far as clipping and snapping in place, and you’re car will have a nice, tight bra installed in no time.
Keep in mind that your vehicle type will play into the ease of installation. Car bras for Toyota Corollas will go on much easier than a Porsche Boxster bra or a Mini Cooper bra, and a Jeep Wrangler bra will install faster than a Honda Fit bra. This is just because these vehicles have a less contoured shape than those others, which makes installation a lot easier.
No matter what you drive though, always stick with a custom-patterned bra from one of the top brands. This way you’re sure to get a proven design along with some of the finest materials available. And, by just following the tips above, you can assure yourself an easy job of installing it.
Let the sunshine in, or in this case, on. We can’t stress enough the importance of not only letting your new bra warm up in the sun before installation, but also performing the installation on a warm day. The lined-leather material is much more pliable when warm, letting you stretch it into place without stretching a hammy.
