I'm in the market for one too. Maybe we can get a discount for a 2-fer.

I'd get in as long as it's relatively reasonable. I've been quoted anywhere between 750-1000 for basically seran wrapping my bumper.

Sounds like you're better off putting that money toward new paint every 3-5 years. ...if you need it.

I already have several chips on my bumper after only 4 months. Pretty much every major road around here is undergoing expansion or repaving of some sort. :cry:

Based on a post at FA, I guess we might want to steer clear of Thomas Cheng. Anyone have any experience with Detailing Dynamics (also listed in that post)?

Searching on 3M's website I also found the following 3M authorized installers:

Clear-View Window Tinting Inc.
Phone: 631-598-7460
62 Merrick Road
Amityville, NY 11701
Note: No complaints with BBB last 36 months :)

Mint Finish Inc.
Phone: 718-986-0864
184 Whitman Drive
Brooklyn, NY 11234
Note: Cheesy website and no BBB records.

Recondition USA
Phone: 631-420-1500
200 Broadhollow Rd
Farmingdale, NY 11735

Anyone have any experience with any of these? I wouldn't mind using a place that does tinting also, since I'd like to get the front door glass tinted.

These guys used to do all my tinting work at another shop. They are excellent. Ask for Ralph or Vinny. They are brothers and the owners. Tell them John from Maximum sent you.

Thanks for the info John.

PrayForSnow & ujmot,
I'd like to give these guys a call tomorrow and get some pricing. You guys OK with me telling them there could/would be 2 or 3 guys getting it done? I'm not going to commit anything to them yet, just looking for pricing info with some sort of mini-group buy.

Anyone else in the LI/NYC area interested? The more people, the better the pricing...

I just called Clear-View and they don't do clear bra's anymore because they were not happy with the results.

I spoke to Matt at Detailing Dynamics and he invited me to go to his shop and check out his personal FX35's clear bra. I'll probably go out there this Saturday to discuss options and pricing. He offerered a group discount when I told him there were several people from here that were interested. They also do window tinting as well.

I stopped by Detailing Dynamics today and I was very impressed. Matt keeps a very clean shop and there were no less than 4 Ferrari's there, including an F40. Magician, I have to agree with you - he definitely loves cars and seems to be a perfectionist. I also checked out the clear bra on his personal FX35 and a few customer cars and the workmanship looked excellent.

Ok - so here's the deal. We went over what he recommends doing and some pricing. He broke it down per piece:

Front Bumper ($395)
Full coverage, one piece custom fit/trimmed for the FX.

Hood ($75)
Covers from bottom of leading edge to break where hood transitions to horizontal.

Front Fender Wings ($75/pr)
Continues from the hood piece to a few inches behind the headlights.

Fog Lights ($75/pr)

"Shark Fins" ($195/pr)
Pieces for rear door to prevent chips from rocks etc. thrown up from the front tires. Matt's FX (with mud flaps) had chips there after only a few weeks, which is why he offers it. See my drawing below that shows approximately where it covers.

Matt asked me to relay to everyone that all pieces are custom fitted (not a kit) from the latest generation of 3M film which supposedly has better clarity and a longer warranty. He is also offering a group discount of 15% for 2 people, or 20% for 3 or more. :D Let me know if anyone else in the LI area is interested so we get in on the group rate.
