Default Clear Bra Installers in the DMV area!

Hey guys,

I was searching the chapter forum and didn't see any recent posts about clear bra installers. I found a couple in the area, but was wondering if anyone had a good/bad experience at any of the local places!

Also, I am leaning towards the xPel Ultimate for just the full front (bumper, hood, side mirrors, pillars) , but anyone do just half the hood + bumper?

Thanks!

My buddy installs clearbras! He actually uses Suntek. He's pretty busy as he does work for several dealerships but I can put you in contact with him.

Driven Dynamics in Rockville did mine when I first got my car. They work with Xpel on a regular basis so they know what their doing.

Mine was a pre-cut 3m kit so it covers full front bumper and only half the hood and fenders.

Just picked up a 2017 CBS wrx. Looking to get a clear bra. I'm in the baltimore area. Anyone know good spots? Also, how do you like the half hood? Any buildup along the line when you clean the hood?

No build on mine. Just have to be careful when using claybar cause that will get caught on the bra

I had my 3M clear bra (half hood, mirrors, full bumper, half quarter panels) done for a really good cash price at TNT Tint in Sterling VA.

Driven Dynamics also installed the XPEL kit on my 2008 Forester XT. Great shop and highly recommended!

Default Resurrecting an Old Thread...

Driven Dynamics is shown as permanently closed. Any new recommendations in the DMV area, especially the V?
