    Very Nice Car Bra for GT-3

    If you are like me, you may not have considered a car bra. I loaned my GT-3 to SpeedLingerie (because they asked nicely) to enable them create a custom bra for the GT-3. I was very impressed by the results. Very well fitted and the stitching follows the GT-3 lines really well.

    A couple details you can't see in the photo:
    - black mesh over the in-takes
    - clear plastic over the side markers and porsche crest

    I have no business relationship with Speedlingerie. Just passing on some info.

    Thanks GoPlay for stepping up to the plate and offering your car for the prototype bra so that other's like myself can benefit from your generosity. As I mentioned on Rennlist, I have ordered one in seal grey.

    Re: Very Nice Car Bra for GT-3

    Thanks GoPlay

    To make things a little bit more clear got some questions.

    They come in any color that you want?

    Do they paint it or the plastic/leather comes that color?

    If painted will the color come off?

    Re: Very Nice Car Bra for GT-3

    I hope you got the bra out of the deal on the arm.

    Re: Very Nice Car Bra for GT-3

    Regarding color: I believe they make it in a variety of colors. They could tell you what colors. I don't believe the color is a paint, rather the vinyl is dyed. Again, better ask them about color-matching etc.

    As far as getting a bra for letting them use my car, I actually agreed to do it without even considering compensation. (This is a long story about how someone on another message board helped me out with a tire problem, and I felt I should continue to "pay-it-forward"!)

    When they told me I'd get a free bra out of it, it really didn't matter to me, because I had never really liked car bras. However, once I saw how good it looked, I may very well take them up on their offer!

    Considering the bra costs $600, I would take them up on their offer. By the way, as far as colors go, they offer all of the main factory oem colors and the vinyl is impregnated with the color, not painted on...First class all the way...

    Re: Very Nice Car Bra for GT-3

    Just an fyi - for $600 you could also opt for a very professional clear-bra (3M) job that would cover the nose, mirrors and behing the 4 wheels (where rocks get thrown back). This is a bad option on black cars (too visible), but looks great on light colors like silver...

    What is the maximum speed of the GT3 with the bra installed?

    Hi Grant,

    Where can we get this transparent bra from 3M ?

    I don't really understand why you use the bra for your cars. Here in Europe, we don't know this.
    If there were any problems with stone impacts, I would consider to repaint the bumper ... which is about 200 euro.

    Re: Very Nice Car Bra for GT-3

    Jecey - For $600, this clear film is professionally applied (not a kit) to the car by an expert - custom job. I know a very good expert in Denver, but that won't help you in Belgium. Here in Denver, there is alot of gravel on the road (trucks spread it to help with the snow), so the clear bra is very useful to protect the paint.

    You SPREAD gravels to help for snow ????
    ok, I get it now ... nothing related to appearance then.
    Thanks for the 3M info ... I should find that anyway ...
    but what about your windshield ??? gosh, you should have a good insurance for replacement in case the glass is broken.
    In Europe, during winter time, trucks are spreading a kind of salt ... which is not better, and "help" alot for corrosion.
    This doesn't help when there is a lot of snow on the road.
    Don't know if you have this in the States.

    Re: Very Nice Car Bra for GT-3

    Jecey - Yeah, it's a fine gravel - more like corse sand. They used to use salt, but that just rusted all the cars. Now, in the city, they use Magnesium Chloride to prevent the streets from icing, but in the mountains, they use this corse sand. None of it is good for the cars, and yes, we get alot of broken windshield

    The clear bra looks invisible from 5ft (1.5m) away and allows me to drive the Porsches all year long
