Front mask

Would some of you nice folks suggest a source for a front end mask (bra)?

The cost to replace our 3M clear cover is rediculous.

I had one made for my last MH from coastline cover co. It fit like a glove and was easy to put on and take off.

I read somewhere that one person had the front of his Motorhome sprayed with the bed liner they put in the back of pick-up trucks. I thought If my plastic starts to discolor, I will probably use the bed liner approach. Talking about easy of cleaning and etc. Only need to clean the front if the possum does not fall off on him own. Bugs--no problem. Just a thought s/Toby

I've seen a couple of coaches with bed liner sprayed on the front. From a distance it looks like a bra. One did is in black and the other did his with a paint color to match the rest of the coach. Unfortunately the colored one looked much lighter than the rest of the coach. I think it looked that way because of the multi facets caused by the bedliner spray being textured and not smooth. Maybe a shade or two darker paint would look like a match.

OK, I admit I'm re-opening this thread after a long time. Having said that, the idea of using a bed-liner spray as a front mask is kind of a unique idea. Has anyone actually done this and what's the pro's & con's? I can't seem to find what I'm looking for on my 09 Damon Outlaw so any ideas are appreciated. Thanks!

I don't know the difference cost between 3m and diamond shield but I have diamond shield that had to be replaced because of lot damage which most of the time causes paint damage at removal then you have to let the paint cure for about a month before installation either one you must take care of it clean, wax often.

I had to remove the 3M film from the front of mine, and have a piece across the rear under the engine access door that is beginning to look bad too. As far as I am concerned, vinly films are a total waste of money unless you plan to sell the vehicle within 3 years after the film is put on. Longer than that and the film will start to look bad and have to be removed and paint repaired ...which will cost more than simply having it repainted.

Paul,

Hate to disagree with the Padre, but I have Diamond Shield and it's just about 6 yrs old and looks great. I use 303 on it regularly. Maybe I just got a good application. Don't know why some folks seem to have problems.

I agree with allynne you must take care of them diamond shield is not 3m it can go over corners like bolt holes, head light openings my opinion looks better.

I have a product called Venture Shield, www.invisiblepatterns.com , that works well. After 4 years it still looks great.

The bras can be a pain too. I used one for 4 years but now I go braless. The body shop that repaired our rig after a front end accident destroyed both bra and front cap said they would repaint my lower front cap for less than the cost of buying a new custom vinyl bra (about $800), so that's my plan.
