Question Wanted (Bra)"The Mask" 2000 Alpine Coach

Does anyone have a (Bra) "The Mask" for a 2000 Alpine Coach. Even if it's not in great condition I can use it for a pattern to make a new one.

Have you tried using a "Clear bra or Clear Shield" Product? Works great. Also, the Alpine is very easy to install compared to other brands. $550-$700 at a reputable shop.

Don't Alpines come with the protective film on the slide out part of the front cap? It is on my coach, but the previous owner doesn't recall adding it, and meticulous record show nothing. However, I don't have a "build sheet".

I don't think the early Alpines had the protective film. My 2002 came without it and I installed one of those 1/4 inch thick bug shields. The film was an option in 2002. Starting with the 2003 or 2004 Alpines I think the film became standard. I'am not sure about the years but should be close. My 2008 has the film but I'am not sure I like it because it scratches and stains easy. It might be cheaper to repaint every 4 or 5 years. A bra might be a good idea if you don't use it all the time. I think it will rub the paint if left on a long time. When the love bugs come out in the south east it would be nice to have a cover on the front.

Here's my two cents (all I have Left after you-know-who gets done with our economy) I have the clear shield on the front end of my 2003 38FDTS. It has become semi ruined with scratches, dents, dings, stains and everything else that can befall a coach on the road. I'd be interested in finding some kind of ANYTHING to clean up my coach's front end. I don't know if I have the 3M "plastic" or the Diamond Shield, but I could sure use something to make it look nice again.

My 05 came with the clear shield. It still looks like new. The key is to wax it regularly with a good grade heavy duty wax. Makes it easier to remove the bugs also.

Didn't mean to hijack your thread. I apologize. Our Company has been installing clear shield for several years. We primarily focus on sports cars, trucks and motorcycles. Since our purchase of our Alpine, we hadn't thought about the RV segment. I had our techs install it on ours last weekend. It is allot easier than any car or truck by far. Almost flat without any complex curves and angles. There are vehicles that we installed this on 4 years ago and it looks brand new. However, it absolutely has to be washed and waxed 2-3 times a year. There are really only 3 to 4 quality manufacturers on the market. Stay away from anything under $150-$200 just for materials for apx. 60sq. ft. That's our cost. Anything cheaper is just garbage. It can actually damage the paint.

Our '01 had accumulated enough dings and gashes that it was time for a new paint job. We chose to use colored truck bedliner instead. It was cheaper than a repaint, probably tougher than clearshield, and it looks sharp. We've had several compliments on it.
