Cadillac SRX Clear Bra Installation @ Bravo Protection Products Minnetonka, MN

Clear Bra MN Cadillac Hood

2013 Cadillac SRX 3M Clear Bra installation on the hood, fenders, mirrors, and full front bumper. Today we installed a clear bra on this 2013 Caddy the dealership brought the vehicle in for a client. They wanted to protect the leading edge of the hood with a 18″ computer cut kit.

We use Baby Shampoo to slide the Clear Bra kit around and align the edges. That is what we are spraying here in this photo. Just about any shampoo or soap will work but based on the success of the Baby Shampoo it is what we use.

Clear Bra Squeegee from sides to center of Cadillac SRX hood

The Cadillac SRX Clear Bra is installed from the edges to the center. It is a easier alignment and much better installation. We use overlapping strokes and wet the surface with the shampoo solution.

Clear Bra Cadillac SRX Minneapolis MN alignment

Checking the alignment on the Cadillac SRX Clear Bra is very important. When installing the clear bra you want to make sure that the edges are as close as they can be on the hood. Any overlapping film will collect dirt and could peel.

The installation is the single most important factor in getting a great clear bra install. Anyone can buy film or a clear bra kit but its how its installed that makes the difference.

Don’t Choose A Mobile Installation

Don’t settle for mobile service in Minneapolis, MN. Mobile installers are a thing of the PAST! If you are looking for a quality installation at your location get ready to be disappointed. It is rare to find a mobile installer that has a plotter and film in there vehicle with all of the correct tools. Most installers travel around with the film in there car and hand cut on the vehicles. On the rare occasion the installer brings a pre cut kit. It is usually the only kit for that vehicle. Meaning that if something happens to that kit, it is either going to be installed incorrectly or modified to fit. The space that the Clear Bra is installed in is important as well. If the area is dirty or has poor lighting the installation will most likely turn out poorly.

Bad place to install a 3M Clear Bra!

A Clean Clear Bra Shop Provides A Better Installation

Installing a Clear Bra the proper way means that the installation facility must be clean and well lit. Temperature is a bonus as well. If you have a shop that is well lit and the climate is controlled to between 70° and 80° the installation should be exceptional.

One main factor in receiving a great 3M Clear Bra installation is to have the correct tools.  At our shop we have all of the tools needed to install the shield the proper way. Each kit is produced on a graphtec plotter which means that it is a digitally designed kit that will fit each contour of your vehicle. While installing the Clear Bra if we see that the kit has become contaminated, scratched or has a blemish we can go over to our plotter and re cut the piece. This means that the level of quality can be held to a higher standard with out sacrificing time.

The biggest factor in choosing a professional clear bra installation facility in MN is the ability to clean the vehicle the proper way prior to installation. Each clear bra that is installed at Bravo Protection Products is cleaned using 3M adhesive remover, car wash the installation areas and alcohol solution the areas as well.

Body Shop MN

Body Shop MN

Sears Body Shop located in Plymouth, MN specializes in Auto Body Repair. In January Bravo Protection Products purchased a 2002 BMW M3 to turn into a race car / marketing piece. When we got the car we knew that it wasn’t going to be a show vehicle. There was going to be some thing that would need to be fixed. The first thing that we wanted to do with the BMW was install the full hood full fenders and full front bumper clear bra kit. But there was a clear bra already on the car. We noticed that the eyebrow piece under the passenger headlight had paint that was peeling. The wheels and all the badging were custom painted to a grey color and the drivers side rims had small scuffs in the paint. But the big problem was inside the BMW. It was brought to my attention that the door handles on the E46 BMW have a delaminating problem. Where they bubble or blister.

Sears Body Shop MN

Check out the bubbles on the passenger door handle. BMW knows about this problem but never sent out a recall for this. I asked Sears Body Shop if they could color match both door handles and paint them. Sears used a special camera to take an image of the other interior panels. Then they painted both of my door handles to match.

 

 This was the BMW M3 Door Handles after Sears had sanded them down and had them primed.
