Omaha Clear Bra
« on: January 07, 2013, 11:12:06 AM »
Has anyone had any experience with these guys? They have a shop address listed, but the guy said he does the clear bra's at his own shop/house. They gave me a quote to do the front bumper, 18" up the hood and fenders, the mirrors, headlights, the cargo area below the hatch, and the door cups for $550. Plus the do a paint sealant for free. It already has rear impact and door edge done from Beardmore.

Does this seems like a reputable place and/or a reasonable price?? Thanks.

Well I took on chance with this guy and it seems to have turned out really well. Seems to be a freelancer that has trained all of the xpel vendors here in town. He said he's done the clear bra installs for Markel BMW for quite a while now. He did everything I mentioned in the last post, plus a few extras that I really wanted. There a still a few specs on it in the photos because I started taking them while he was finishing up. I'll put a few pictures in here, the rest are in my Picasa Album

pics look great!  I am getting the BRZ clear bra'ed as soon as I can get it done.  So I assume you were very satisfied with their work then?  If you think they did a great job, they have my business.  With the sand mixture they throw on the roads during the winter here, I would rather not have chips in the paint and have 500+ dollars eat the rocks and debris rather than a 1000+ dollar paint job.

I noticed a few cloudy areas that he said take a few days to go away and there's a seam across the lower lip of the front bumper due the brand of bra used other than that its perfect. He said any issues at all he will take care of and the material has a 10 year warranty. A really nice guy to work with though, I got to watch him finish and talk for awhile about his business and experience. Here's his card.

Full hood and fenders or just the partial? The full panels gets crazy $ fast lol. I'd just give the guy a call when you get a chance and ask. You can say I referred you if you want, my name is Alex H.

Yeah Full hood haha and Fenders,  Way the BRZ sits, rock will roll right on up.  Will do, I know it will add up fast which is why I set aside a $2000.00 budget for Tint, wheels, and clear bra.  I want to Opticoat the car but not in the winter.

But seriously...warm it up with a hairdryer and peel away.

That's a heck of a lot cheaper than the place in Lincoln where I wanted to get the burz done. They wanted $800 (iirc) for just the bumper.

I used a heat gun on mine. Just keep it moving over the paint and don't get too close. Work as slow as needed so you damage the finish.
