Getting ready for spring engine up grades RPIdon carbon flash intake with NRB covers all around in the engine compartment, plus AFE air intake sure cleans up the engine compartment.

Install NoviStretch Bra for highway driving bug season.:D

Won't be long now, hoping to get lots of spring driving in before I go to Spring Mountain in July..........

Man, talk about doing it Old school.

Your car is screaming Ouch!

Sorry, but That bra will do more paint damage than it will protect.
The edges rub trapped dirt on your paint like sandpaper.
And they hold moisture in. All the nasty stuff your paint should not have to deal with.

I went with clear bra., the right way to do it. Spend the $1000 and do it properly.

I did not know they still sold those 30 year old bras.
No sports or exotic owner will use those now. I have not seen one in many years anywhere in BC Canada.

This post is meant to save your paint, not to be insulting to your choice.
Hopefully not too late for u to return it.

The cf stuff is awesome ... the bra although it may protect the car from some debris, no so much. I think 3M or some other clear wrap looks much better.. just mho.

The NoviStretch Bra best on the market made of fine mesh cloth material, and also my car is wrapped with a clear bra, when driving to car shows the good thing about the Novibra keeps all bugs out of rad so you don't spend 4 hours cleaning same.
It's only used on the highway, lots of USA guys swear by them..

Im driving from Fort Mac to Vancouver in May and have been contemplating one of these, as I am going to a huge car rally in Vancouver and not having a front full of bugs would be ideal, but I just cant justify driving around with this mask on. To me it just looks hideous and I would cring everytime I got out and looked at my car.

How long does it take to take off/put on?
 
The upgrades in the engine compartment look fantastic!
Somewhere I missed the part about you installing the bra to improve the looks of your car........ :D
My only question with the bra is how well the air flow through it as it is covering the hole for your radiator. Does the car run warmer?
 
I used an old style leather look bra on my 2003 for 10 plus years, no paint damage what so ever. You just have to be diligent in cleaning it when you arrive at your destination. It was very tight fitting and didn't flop around what so ever at high speeds.

There is no restriction of air flow when the bra is on it's like a fine mesh screen just like a pantyhose. The car does not run any hotter. It snaps off in one minute, and then wash it in the sink, it's small enough to store in your glove box. I only use mine for highway driving and take it off when I get to where I'm going.

It's called the Diamond Rally. Give it a Google. It's lots of high end cars, Ferrari's, McLarens, Lambos, etc. Our little C7 somehow makes the cut. They limit the number of lower end cars like ours, GTR's, AMG's etc.

It's a fun cruise from Vancouver to Whistler, then to Vernon over 2 days. Stopping at places for pictures and staying at very fancy (and discounted!) resorts lol. I can't wait. I will have a big album up here posted for sure. Going to be fun speeding through downtown Vancouver being escorted by police. :)

Edit: guess you edited your post to show you know about it! Why would you say Yawn? My friend went last year and said it was fantastic. Saw a Veyron, tons of other amazing cars and had a blast.
 
Yes, did it last year with another of our cars. Even then there were some C7 vettes, and one really old vette.

The veyron was in the showroom at the 'before party', but not on the rally.

Hope you have a great time, because it will be special for you if you have not done these type of events before....

I've never done anything like this before. I get to see F430's or if lucky a 458 maybe 2-3 times a summer? And I'm not as "privileged" I guess as you lol so I'm very excited to be around all these high end cars and getting to drive with them.
 
The Diamond Rally - WTF???

Any old Viper will be able to enter but only Corvette C7's??

Oh well, at least they didn't allow any Mustangs!
