Very nice! Did you do the full hood wrap or partial? I'm debating if I wanna do full or partial since i'm worried dirt will build up on the line

I was concerned with the same thing - dirt! But to be honest, as long as you maintain your car and tape around the edge when waxing, you'll be fine! Mine is holding up really nice!

I just got Suntek installed and it looks amazing! You can't even tell.

Now for others who got clear bra done, did you get your headlights done? I'm debating if I should do my headlights now. Are there any issues putting films on headlights?

I had my headlights done, but, I do a ton of highway driving. Glad there is the extra protection on them. If they can mange to install the film on an fsport bumper with no issues then they will have no problem with the headlights.

I actually didn't get the hood wrapped. I just got the bumper. If I were doing the hood though, I would go for the full thing as I too don't like the line from a partial. We got the hood on my husband's NX fully wrapped with along with the bumper. It was actually relatively inexpensive as it's pretty flat. Wrapping the hood is much cheaper than the bumper.

Does anyone know where I can order this Suntek clear bra?

A few years ago I ordered 3M clear bra DYI kit. It was OK.

Thanks,

Even if it yellows after a few years, you can remove and replace it, and the paint underneath will still be perfect. At 150 dollars for a diy bumper kit, I think it's a pretty good investment to protect the factory paint.

My husband has one on his imperial blue metallic 2012 Camaro, and it has been great for keeping his front end free of any rock chips, but you can't even see it on such a dark color.

Anyone with experience or photos?
Just got mine done last weekend, I can't tell by looking or touching it that it's on there. Full hood, front bumper, full fender, mirrors and emblem in front.
