looking for a bra

Just bought a 2012 SE for the little woman. We live in the AZ Desert and the elements are rough on everything. Looking for a bra that will (of course) cover the front of car but also help in deflecting sand, rocks, etc from hitting the windshield. Any suggestions??? Any photos???

Hopefully your talking about clear bra. Any vinyl or sign shop can do it

I almost spit my drink out when I read the thread headline.

+1 to a clear bra. Those old leather bras, aside from being ugly, trap the sand and grit underneath them along with moisture. Mold and mildew along with a mix of grit and nastiness scratching the paint; yuck!

Clear bra is the only way to go.

Living in dusty Arizona will only make the issue worse with grit and dust under a removeable cover and will "sand" your finish underneath even if you keep it cleaned regularly. I know this since I've had plenty of experience with them over 20 years. You just can't keep grit from getting underneath.
