3M Protective Film Clear Bra Test

With all the talk of paint protection, and with so many great products out there, not as many car nuts have ever seen or heard of the "clear bra" or protective film. However, there are plenty of articles out there talking about it, and how to install it. Now the reader can see first hand what the fuss is about. In this article we look at the 3M Protective Film for the automotive industry. We talk about how to care for it, options to install it, and how durable it is. Plenty of pictures and videos, and off course we test durabilty by shooting it with an air pistol to see if it shreds by being hit at 260+ MPH by a pellet.

What it takes: A Day in the Life of a Car Designer (Part 1)
Transportation design seems to be the major endeavor for the automotive youth in this day in time. People see shows on TV depicting people building choppers, cars, and other custom vehicles with complete ease. Then these same viewers think they can do the same. Quite contrary to first impression, it is a tremendous task to build a custom auto using existing plans, much less build one from scratch.
