Yeah that would work the best I have never put anything on mine just wash it every once in awhile. Hate what its doing to my hood though before I noticed the paint faded. Oh well next year I will send it in to get painted.

Do you guys leave them on all the time. I was thinking of alternating. One week on and one week off.

I only put mine on when I do long stretches of driving on the highway, which seems to be where bugs and rock chips are the worst. Whenever my car sits or I'm just doing around town stuff, I always take it off.

Yea, I have been thinking about getting one just for road trips. I never really notice anything when washing the car after driving around town. However, after a roadtrip, I usually spot a chip or 2.

Aww crap. My paint is going to fade. How badly. I have a black car and I guess you'll probably be able to tell even more. I knew it would fade a little but now I'm concerned after reading this.

i'd recommend taking it off every time you wash it, and like everyone else said, leave it off unless your'e on a road trip, or you drive on the freeway a lot in inclement weather.

The thing is, I drive on the Highway to work and back every week. I really don't go anywhere else except to the store and stuff, so it's on like all the time. Any suggestions.

Yeah I didn't take my bra off the first 5K miles and then I went to take it off and I noticed spots on the top bra. It was from washing my car and the water sat there and got hot and faded the paint. With living in AZ its all sand and rocks. For highway driving I would leave a bra on thats where I have found on other cars where the chips happen. But around town I have been just leaving it off, yeah if it rains or something a lot I wouldn't recommend keeping the bra its just like when you wash the car the water gets under the bra. But with moving back to Oregon I won't be having my bra on much since it rains so much, but yeah I am going to save up some cash and have those spots on my hood worked out, they are fugly when you can see them at a angle.

I was waiting for someone to ask about how to treat your nose mask. First off dont ever apply any of those dressings to the bra. It actually doesnt help the material it makes it less water proof, and it will dry out and crack after a while. Just make sure you wash the bra every few months. Also taking the bra off while you are washing the car is always smart. There can be an accumulation of dirt under the bra and if you wash it with the bra on, you could be wiping the dirt into the paint which will give you scratches. When I had a bra on one of my older cars, I always made sure I put a good coat of wax on underneath the bra. You want to protect the paint really well under the bra. If you do not wax under there, the paint will get dull and start to blotch. Just make sure you wax under there once a month and you will be fine.

I leave mine one to drive all the time, had a bad expereince with my last car where a huge rock came up and hit the front part of the hood, leaving a huge scratch and dent, the bra just covered it all up...frequently wash it, take it off when washing, dry with a chamois, works like a charm!

Hey Civicdude how can I get those spots on my hood fixed? Will they have to repaint the whole hood area? If so am I better of waiting for another year when I see more rock chips and just have them do the whole front area?

If you cant either wet sand them or polish them out then they will have to be painted. If you can take a picture of them and ill tell you if they will come out...or try to tell you.
