I use the two piece . Love it ! I also wax the area every two weeks , shake dirt and leaves out and never , I mean never leave the bra on the car if it is wet . It will torture your paint .

When I first put it on my car I could not get the hood to close . Another Pelican told me to use an allen wrench to loosen and move the hood latch . Genius !! I also have the mirror bras with the gold and red crest ( my friends think they are a little feminine ) but I receive alot of complements .

Here is our 1983 SC with a Colgan Bra at the RennSport Reunion at Daytona.

This fits the way it should.

PWD72S - What an excellent example of what a classic p-car should look like! Hat's off to you.

Forget the fabric bra. Try Mag Bra, a superior product idea. Excellent design/engineering/execution. Wayne should sell these things.

Vinnie et al: Are you guys not concerned about the bra blocking the airflow to you front oil coolers?

Lol! Very funny!

I have a Colgan 2-piece. Andras nailed it. If abused, the bra is hell on your car. If used properly, it saves you from stone chips that our low hoods are so prone to. I use mine on long highway jaunts and then stow it. The one piece looks like hell (except for the cleavage!). Not that the two-piece looks so great, but at least you can open your hood.

Tom & Craig? Thanks for the kind words...


Here's one of the car with the bra on...I really feel Colgan is the reason my car still sports it's original paint. Oregon has a front license plate required law. I had an upholstery shop sew a clear pocket in the front of the bra, slip the plate in there.

Frankly, the one piece bras look a bit more classic IMHO. I have one that fits the countours of the body, and I am not as inclined to use it. It is also a lot simpler to actually use the one piece. My earlier comments still hold, but they do have a purpose and a place!
