    Pulling off clear wrap this weekend.... What to expect/do?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    So, I'm going to peel the clear bra wrap off of my "new" car this weekend and then give it a proper strip, clean, polish, seal detail.


    It's got some scratches and the edges are looking a little loose/gunked up or I would just leave it on.


    My questions are: Are there any special considerations I need to give before just pulling it off? Do I need to do anything other than just pick an edge and peel?

    Use a steamer and pull the leading edge towards you. Use 3M Adhesive remover to take off any residual gunk.

    Hmm, the steamer part could be tough.

    I found removing a clear bra is easier than I thought..... just make sure the paint is cool.

    No steamer. Steamer only works on window tint.
    You will need a heat gun.
    Pulling the plastic off itís not a big deal, dealing with the adhesive residue is where all the fun is at.

    Maybe I'll just take it to a detail shop to deal with the wrap... Hmm.
