Has anyone ever put a bumper and hood bra on their car? I searched but short of going thru 500 pages of pics, I was hoping someone could post one up for me!

Anybody? I can't find any pics any where.

just google image search 'subaru outback car bra'... i see them around here from time to time but really, they dont look like they line up right, and it makes it look like the hood doesnt close all the way...

i dont remember what its called but there's some transparent vinyl or something like that that you put on the front and is supposed to protect everything the same way

problem with those is, the more wind they see the more they rub on the paint.

They don't look right and they scratch the paint. And after a while, the paint underneath doesn't match the rest of the car. it's a waste of money. Just keep your car clean whenever it gets dirty and you'll have no need for the bra

Wow, that fits terrible, not going that route for sure now! Thanks for finding the picture!

The problem I have with a hood bra is that it serves the same purpose as those thin plastic films that come on new items to keep delicate surfaces from getting scratched. However, they look terrible in the process. So basically you are using something that looks ugly because you are trying to keep it looking nice... but what the **** is the point if it looks like crap the entire time you own it?! I always have to resist the urge to rip off the clear plastic protectors on electronics in other people's homes. They curl up at the edges and get all yellowed and I'm like TAKE IT OFF, and they are like NO, I WANT IT TO STAY LOOKING LIKE NEW! The hell...

And don't say resale value, because (a) a few rock chips on the nose of the car aren't going to affect anything, and (b) enjoy the damned car and its good looks and screw the few extra dollars you'll gain on trade-in!
