Arrow front nose bra

Dose anybody know where to get a nose bra for the front of an SLK 230. My slk was egged and the hood had to repainted. I want to protect the front now from stone chips etc.

car bra

Bought mine from Colgan Custom back in 1999, it is still in great shape and the fit was very good. Make sure when you purchase one that you tell them that is is a sport or non sport model SLK because they are different bras.

Colgan was the OEM supplier, so it would appear that Mercedes think a lot of them as well..........

Have you considered that clear plastic film? That stuff can be applied to the sheet metal, headlights, mirrors, etc. I've seen some that are very nice and others not so nicely done.

Yes I have. I just got my car back from the bodyshop. The hood was egged and the whole hood had to be painted. The guy at the bodyshop said don't us a nose bra because it traps dirt and grim under it and will damage the paint. He recommended what you are talking about. He gave the name of a company that does 3m film covering. They come right to your house and do it.
