Bra or Protective Material for Front?

Hello again. I was wondering if there is something that can be easily put on/ removed from the front bumper to protect the paint. I don't think that a bra is easily applicable and removable but I'm not sure. There is a thread called "Road Wrap Anyone" and that product seems interesting enough.
I was just wondering if anyone had an opinion to share. Thanks

You could get a clear bra... It isn't something you put on and take off all the time. But when put on right you can only see it super up close. After a while it will start to get dimples from rock chips and such and start to yellow, but then you can take it off and put a new one on.

Where could I look at something like that? It sounds like it would work

Your car looks good NJ, but I would like for it to cover the entire bumper and not just the top section.

You could find it online (lots of different places) or you could go to a shop that does stuff like vinyl stripes and they should have some and be able to do it.

Thanks appreciate it, yea I actually have the piece that covers the whole front bumper as well, but it looks totally ugly so never threw it on, I'd highly highly suggest the clear bra if you wanna cover it all...many local detail shops in my area actually offer clear bras in many different options, some to cover just the front hood/bumper/ some that cover the entire hood/front bumper, and it even saw one that covered the entire front of the vehicle from nose to end of the front doors, all of which are very un noticeable from what I've seen

And you don't have to worry about polishing and waxing the clear bra, cause you won't get swirl marks in it.

I did a clear bra on the entire front end of my 5.0 and it's been very worth it. The only time you can see it is when the car gets dirty and the dirt makes a little line on the edge of the vinyl lol. It's been installed on the car since November 2012 and isn't yellow or anything yet. No rock chips or damage so I'm happy! Probably goin to go with that 3m clear bra spray next time though because I believe I can get better coverage painted on. The clear bra leaves a couple spots vulnerable just due to its pre-cut design.

Had a 3M clear bra on my Goat and hated it. I am a perfectionist and would stare at the clear seams every time I approached the car. Think I was the only one that noticed it, but meh! Pulled it off after a month. I also flip toilet paper rolls over at friends houses...
