Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!
Riley, it is the perfect vette for me. Wasn't expecting to find a C5 in such awesome shape. Standard size wheels with 17" 245's on front and 18" 275's on the rear.
Car Guy, Ponoka is south of Edmonton about 90 klm or north of Calgary about 170 klm.

How do you like the bra on your car? Have you noticed if it has saved you from stone chips? Are there any issues with it scratching the paint?

Riley, with regards to the bra. I love the looks of the bra on some cars. Of course theres a lot of guys who figure it scrathes/wears the paint ect. My buddy is running the same bra on his vette. After it being on his car for close to two years we looked at the condition of the paint........no wear marks, no scratching. I haven't had mine on long enough to know. Its thick enough material so I'm sure it will protect against rock chips. The bra on my motorcycle has been on for about 5 years and the paint is mint and yet some guys will say don't run a bra because of the same above reasons. Guess it depends a bit on driving conditions how careful/concerned you are about grit in yer bra ect. I know as I write this there is no grit in my bra (ha ha) on the vette or on the bike. Then again my wife says I'm a bit an-l about such things.

To keep the grit out, do you take it off when you wash the car then put it back on when everything is dry?

This is a great thread for the 2000's! I have the same car as well, only mine is silver! They do look different when mine is sitting next to Rileys!

Riley, this bra fit on sooooo tight that little to no grit gets in. Before I wash I check to see if I can find any........then wash and I only use the wand wash so I can direct the spray away from trying to get under the bra. I end up getting very little water on the bra itself and clean it by hand.
Crusher, if your 3M job is anything like the one I recently saw, it is very sweet.

Has anyone noticed any discoloration of the 3m film? I have yet to see one that didn't start to peel or turn yellow. My bro had 3m put on his new car through the dealer and within 2 months they had to peel it all off and start over. (Yes, it was specifically 3m and some other cheaper product)
