For those who had clear bra paint protection added to your Fiesta ST, please let us know which brand you chose.

I need to get clear bra put on the front of the car. If people don't mind, I'd also be interested to hear what areas that had wrapped and how much they paid.

I'm probably going to have the whole front bumper wrapped, but I'm not sure if I want to do a strip on the hood or the whole thing.

For mine, I did the front bumper, side mirrors, entire hood, partial front fenders, door sills, door handle cups, rear upper bumper for $750 with Xpel film.

That's a pic of my car being filmed by Frankie. They had to redo the film because I'm very picky and there were a few areas where there was contaminants under the film. This was 3M ceramic film $600,00.

MOFiestaST, is that the 3M Paint Defender or a something more commercial strength? Very nice work by the way.

Did you guys only do partial hood or full hood protection?
I did a partial. Never had a rock hit up near the top of the hood due to its slope. Three or four hits on the glass though, at least 5 on the front clip near the headlights and front near the fogs.

Most of my chips are way at the top of the hood, which is strange because I thought it was more difficult to get chips up there. Looks like I'll need full hood protection, which is expensive.

True. But you also don't have a line across the hood of your car!

My car went to the vinyl install shop for Xpel the day I picked it up from the dealer.

How long do the clear bras usually last?
On my last car I've had it on for nearly 10 years without any problems, but according to the guy that installed my clear bra they guaranty it for 7 years against yellowing.
