    This year at MITM we have the opportunity to have a clear bra installer come to Copper and install quality 3M Clear Bra and Window Tint on participating MINIs.
    Ben Long at Ace Automotive Specialties, Inc has offered to attend this year's MITM if the demand for clear bra is sufficient.
    Having used Ben for the clear bra on my Honda I can personally recommend his work and products. Ben is a 3M Certified Instructor for clear bra installers and does many MINIs a year. Several MINI5280 members have used Ace for their clear bra installations and Ben is well known in the Denver area.
    Visit the Ace website at: www.AceClearBra.com to see more about the company.

    So what say you MITM goers - been meaning to install that clear bra to protect your paint? You know you should put your new stripes on over your clear bra right? Well MITM could be the perfect place to get both a clear bra and new stripes.

    Ace can do 4 or 5 MINIs each day so a maximum of 15 or 16 MINIs can be scheduled depending on what is to be covered (bonnet, bumper, aero kit etc.)

    Sign-up List - Be sure to call Ben (clear bra) or Chuck (tint) for appointment time:
    MINIMaybee (NAM & MA) - Bonnet & Bumper - MCc (Thursday)
    cheri0627 (NAM) - Bonnet - MC
    MININIGEL (MA) - Bonnet & Bumper - MC
    BluByU (NAM & MA) - Bonnet - MCS (Friday)
    TGS91 (NAM) - Tint - MCS
    DougW (NAM) - Tint - MCS

    As for chips (of which I have many to fix as well), Langka will be at MITM so paint chips be gone!
    Oh and I agree with the area above the glass.
    I'll put you down as interested Tracy. Thanks.

    Thanks Tracy - I've emailed Ben for some prices. I asked for bonnet only as well as bonnet and bumper costs. I'll post as soon as I hear back.

    OK so this is the offer Ace Automotive Specialties has made us for MITM:

    For 18" wide bonnet only (wide enough to go over headlights) $299 plus headlight film for free ($79 is the usual charge for the headlights).
    For the bumper only $249 plus headlights for free.
    For both bonnet and bumper $498 with headlights for free.

    Now Ben has said he can go over stripes or cut around them. I recommend you take your old stripes off, get your clear bra on and then get your new stripes put on over the clear bra. Since your clear bra will last longer then your stripes, this will allow you to replace or change the stripes at will.

    So what do you think now? Anybody want to sign-up for a clear bra install?

    Adding Window Tinting ...

    If you look at the title you will see I added Window Tint install. That's right the ACE tinter will not be going on vacation and will instead be able to provide window tinting installations.
    Again - contact Ben at [email protected] and schedule a time for either clear bra and/or window tinting. I will be talking to ACE soon to get a price on the tint.

    I talked to Chuck the window tinter today. He refused to admit it but folks in Denver consider him to be one of the top window tinters in the country so we are luck to get him.
    I'm waiting for some pricing from him for tin-tops, clubbies & verts so stay tuned or email him.
