PostSubject: Bonnet covers   Sat Jul 10, 2010 8:25 pm

Hi all

i have been looking at bonnect covers or bras what ever they are called for the bus.

I go a log of driving around country lanes ect and the amount of stone chips ect the bonnet has got is stupid.

i aldready have a dint and chip out of the top edge where a bird dropped a stone or something on it the little get.

I have seen on VDub transporters but not the other cars where the cover goes over the entire bonnet not just the front of it.

Any ideas would be good, or if anyone has nay pictures that would be good.

cheers

Steve

might be worth checking out getting a protective film put on instead of a carbra
its a clear layer of plastic film thats put over the bonnet and wings to protect from stone chips, looks a lot better then a carbra IMO

Never even thought of looking for such an item, but sounds like it could be a good item to research..

have seen that sort of thing fitted to high end cars, and if fitted properly you really cant see it there, if anything it gives a glossy shine to the body
unfortunately some of them are not cheap though, about £400 ish for it supplied and fitted
if i had the money though i would get it, not sure about the quality of the cheaper ones as i havent seen them
