removing the clear bra will be simple once heated up.. its the adhesive that will suck.
the 3M adhesive remover will work but needs some time and a lil effort as well.
others use water/alcohol 50/50 mix.
im sure phil knows better than I do.
I picked up an S4 which has clear bra on the hood, bumper, and one fender. The other fender had some touch up work, so it does not have a clear bra.
My options are to put the clear bra on that fender, or remove it from the other fender. I hate clear bras - I think they look silly. I'd like to remove it, but a shop quoted me $200 to remove it vs $85 to apply a clear bra to the other fender.
How hard is it to remove a clear bra that has been applied for over 8 years, and would there be a color difference ones the bra is removed?
My A4 had clear bra film applied new from the dealer. Not sure what product it was but after 5 years it started to yellow so I peeled it off. I used a heat gun and worked very slowly. Most of it came off in really large pieces and left no glue residue. The paint under the film was brand new. This may not be the case with every product but that's the way it went down for me, like I mentioned, not sure what brand of film was on the car but it was on there for 5 years. Good Luck!
Anthony May I ask why do you hate it so much? I am thinking of purchasing a clear bra for my MKIV R32, and it just had a fresh front end respray after 8 Years of ownership.
Many people enjoy eating apples and oranges, but in the end they are still… just apples and oranges. The R32 is passion fruit. . Live Long and Prosper.
