Look awful, but that's just my opinion.

We added this to my 2019 Rogue Sport S yesterday after work. It's the Aeroskin hood protector for the Nissan Rogue Sport and it looks GREAT! It went on like a dream (Rob really had no issues with it) but follow the directions for the surface prep since the solution is sticky and makes a mess of the finish. It's the last step before you apply the protector.

It's available at Amazon for about $50 US

Watch in time as it's used and you wash the car.

Water runs down the bonnet between bonnet and bra and collects. It also moves against the paint and scratches it. The water will encourage rust.

I understand the potential benefits of fitting a bra but not sure it is worth it.. my opinion only.

Den, do you want this “Bra” for looks or for a function eg preventing stone chips / insects etc... Have you thought of having the Bonnet Foiled or partial Bonnet Foiled (as much as you want) done. The finish is superb and can be removed if necessary. I have been to a shop here to ask on costs and they are very reasonable. Might be worth thinking about - Dave 😉

Here is a video example of what and how it’s done - just an example !

WW - the bra fits flush with the hood and the edges are sealed with 3M trim tape. I don't think I'll get any water in under there, but at the lowest edge of the bra, in the front, there is a small opening between sections of the tape. If any did manage to get in, I assume it will escape via that small opening (less than a 1/8 inch). Also, since it's sealed to the hood, there's no movement to scratch the paint

Dan123 - Here's the original post:

And 'WW 'was referring to White Wolf (too lazy to type his whole name).
