Since I don't were a bra I probably wouldn't unless I was trying to cover up something that didn't look good.

I have a bra on my tow vehicle.....it was a bad idea. It has scratched the paint bad enough that the front end will need to be painted anyhow.

Chuck, since we were getting chips on toad, I got a car bra. I am removing it often, washing it and keeping good coat of wax on toad front per the directions. Am I fighting a losing battle? We haven't had the bra long so wasn't sure how it would work.

I would not put a bra on the coach. I plan to keep a good coat of wax/polish on the front of the coach and will just get it repainted when/if it gets dinged enough to justify that. I also agree the big lexan front shields make an otherwise nice looking coach look ugly.
How did you get the Diamond Shield off your coach?

I don't know which way to go? Put lots of Armor All on the bra and bugs come right off. Put bra on and it scratches paint, bubbles paint or Diamond Shield. Front of my coach looks bad so I leave the bra on.

I used the heat of the sun to warm the front of the coach. I used plastic razor blades to get an edge started and slowly pulled the stuff off. Mostly it came off in larger sheets but it will tear if you pull too quickly. Once off, I used mineral spirits to soften the glue, scraped off what I could with the plastic blades, then used lacquer thinner to finish removal of the glue. Getting the glue off is harder than the film. I worked on it 2 -3 hours a day for about 4 days.

Once the glue was off, I used Mequiars cleaner/wax on the paint and it looks just like new.

My vote is do not use a bra at all. Not the leather bra, since it scratches the paint. Definitely not the Clear Plastic bra either! I tried many methods to remove my clear 3M bra. It was left on way too long, because I tried to get it off, starting about 5 years after it was installed (in 2004) when it started cracking. Labor intensive! So over the years I would try working on it a little bit at a time. Very frustrating. But ... Thanks Diplomat Dan! Dan's advice, from a previous older post on irv2.com of "Problems with 3m bra." Finally ended my Clear Bra Removal Nightmare, by using a 3000psi Water Pressure Washer. Viewable video at:
