Clear bra in Atlanta?

I'd like to install a front clear bra (is 3M the best?) on my car.
It's starting to get a little warmer and bugs are already starting to grace my front bumper...

Any recommendation for a good shop for this around Atlanta?
How much does a front clear coat usually cost? Is it easily removed/replaced in case it's needed?

I just had the entire front clip on my car covered. He is one of the best in Atlanta. He does the work for Ferrari and lambo.

He did my entire hood, entire front fenders and front bumpers. You cant even see it. Your welcome to look at it if you want to.

His company is atlanta protective films http://www.atlantaprotectivefilms.com/index.htm

Tell him Johnathon Vigrass sent ya.

Well.. I also got both side skirts fully covered, roof, a pillars, rear bumper top, behind and infront of rear wheels, mirrors, door hanlde pulls, Full hood, full front fenders, full front bumper, headlights, fogs and fuel door. That is 1500.

But you dont have to get all that covered. Prices start at 600 and go up to over 2grand (depending on what you get done).

Call him up and tell him what you want. And you are welcome to take a look at my install.

Curious, why the full roof and full hood? I've only ever seen the leading edge of the hood, fenders, and roof done.

My last car got beat up above the half coverage. It looked like crap. So I went full coverage. Also you dont see any lines from just having half coverage. It looks really good with full coverage.


And the roof is just infront of the sunroof and the a pillars. I got full front bumper, full front fenders and full hood.

Derek at atlantaprotectivefilms.com is the best in the area. He just recently did the clear protection film on my Porsche. Much better job than the Speedfilm jobs I saw at the Porsche dealer.
