    Factory "clear bra" piece on rear fender

    The clear bra protection on the rear fender (between door and rear wheel) that came with the car is getting discolored. The aftermarket installer who did the front clear bra on my car says they don't have a replacement piece.

    Does everyone here have it on their car or did you peel it off? Do we really need this protection (in other words, is it worth going to the dealer to replace it?). Thanks.

    Re: Factory "clear bra" piece on rear fender

    I have it on my car. I remember another person on the board who took theirs off. When they did there was a line that outlined the "clear bra". I would replace it with the factory bra. Like you I don't know if it protects anything but who knows.

    Re: Factory "clear bra" piece on rear fender

    Here in Dallas, the fellow who does clear bras can custom cut any piece you need, because he works with the bulk rolls of Scotchcal--can't your installer do the same?

    Should be an easy thing to replace.

    How old is your 997, btw. I had clear bra on my 01 996 TT and it took two years or so before the film started to get a yellow cast to it (mine was a seal grey car, and it was noticeable more on overcast days than bright sunlight).

    Re: Factory "clear bra" piece on rear fender

    I recall someone talking about it before too. But I couldn't find the thread.

    The aftermarket clear bra on the hood and front bumper is about six months old and is looking fine. The car is less than a year old. It is just the factory portion on the rear fender that is starting to tint. I guess it's probably the quality difference between after-market and factory film. I thought my installer should be able to cut one out too. But he said no. Anyone know of a good installer in the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. area I can call?

    Thanks! Yeah, I thought it was weird that he said they couldn't do it. They did an excellent job with the front/hood. Oh well.

    Re: Factory "clear bra" piece on rear fender

    The guy who installed mine pulled off the original fender guards and replaced with the same thinner 3m aerospace leaving only 1 exposed seam and less detectable than the orginal with more coverage.
    highly reccommend since my fender piece seemed tinted when I bought the car with 15miles...
