    Clear bra install for $650??

    A shop quoted me $650 to do a clear bra install on front bumper, mirrors, partial hood, and fenders. Do you guys think this is a good deal? How hard is it to install my self? I have seen the kits for around $350-$400

    It's not hard to do it yourself.
    You can find some good YouTube videos for install
    $650 at the dealer yikes.
    I made them throw that in when I bought my car.

    $650 not including taxes is not that far off from the going rate for having a shop or a dealership do it.

    Honestly if the kit is 400 I think 650 is not too terrible. I tried putting graphics on my trans am back in the day (hey it was the 90s) and it was a LOT harder than I thought it was going to be. Ended up with bubbles and areas that did not adhere perfectly. The flat areas are easy, its the curves and cuts that are a nightmare. For the extra $250 I would think you'd end up with a better install letting a pro do it.

    if you have the patience, skill, and some friends to help... then I would do it myself and save that $250 for a rainy day... but if you want it done with a peace of mind that a real "pro" had it done for you... I personally would just fork over the cash and call it day... but that's just me...

    I haven't done a clear bra install, but my intuition is telling me that it's a PITA.

    Ended up having it installed by the shop. They did an excellent job and were very professional. I would highly recommend them if anyone is looking to get one installed or have their car tinted. They are right outside of philly.

    Ive heard incredibly mixed reviews and seen prices posted (on here/NASIOC) from 500-800. Crazy to think about spending THAT much money just to "protect" your paint, but I can definitely see it being worth it on the bumper/hood.

    an acquaintance of mine paid as much to get his car vinyl wrapped camo as he would have to get it painted a solid color. like $3100
