Anyway, when I got home I had a look at the front of the car and nearly cried.. it's gone from having a couple of stone chips to looking like freckles on a ginger kids face.

    Car is now booked in to have a full front end re-paint next month, bonnet/bumper and then blended into the wings.

    Question is.. Do I get a bonnet bra to protect the new paintwork or is there another cheapish viable solution? How do they look on the E36's? stupid I'd imagine.. but I don't want to end up with all the stone chips again :(
    Must be a Boston Green thing mate... my bonnet is dimpled to f**k

    Get that bra from autobra? looks nice on yours but I think that's due to it being lowered on the dished rims

    see that looks good i think, but the problem i have with putting one on mine is the bonnet includes the kidney grills so it looks a bit silly.
    still undecided though lol

    Here we go again. I asee you havn't checked out magnetbra.com, in the states. This is where I got mine from. I think it was $52 USD (£27-£28) POSTED, took less than a week to get here too.

    And this is my car.

    As you can see, it's perfectly flat, and is air tight, not like those nasty leather jacket rejects!! haha.

    Hi RJB, did u follow the fitting instructions? Use a hairdryer/heat gun to warm it up as you unroll it first? Let it lay totally falt if possible, then lay onto the bonnet, start from the middle, use hairdryer warming the cover OUTWARDS, using cardboard end to press down into the countours of the bonnet.

    Have you got bubbles or parts of the edge not quite sitting flat? If so, just lift off slowly, use hairdryer on HIGH and slowly reapply with something hard edged to press down. By straps, do you mean the push on plastic edge protectors? I got those too. Use heat to gently 'bend' the edge of the cover over the sides, don't need to for the front.

    I fitted mine when it was quite sunny anyway, which heated up the bonnet as well, so made aplying alot easier than to a cold bonnet. Or you could get a few of your numerous female aquaintances to sit on the edge and warm it up with their bums!!!

    Cheers for the info Charley, looks allot more subtle than the one from autobra.. I have decided to get a bonnet bra though (not sure what one yet) and armour fend the front bumper, a friends told me he can have that done by someone so will mange to save some money there.

    Nice Alpina as well :o

    Okey dokey. np. Just remember, if you do go for the leather jacket wannabe, take it off carefully prior to washing the car, dust etc will have gotten underneath and may scratch the bonnet.
