I was reminded of this fact very recently: if you do HPDE's and follow people closely so that they give you the point by, I HIGHLY recommend that you have clear bra on your front bumper, headlights, hood, and front quarter panels, cause your paint will get SMASHED UP otherwise. For some reason I notice it's particularly bad in the rain. Anyhow I have said clear bra on my car except for the small tow hook cover peice and that thing is SMASHED beyond repair from little rocks and debris. HOLY COW
. Will have to resand-repaint it.
So if you have a brand new STI and have new owner's OCD syndrome and want to track, clear bra is mandatory.
