Fender Bra's and Plastic Film Protection
Slow down there guys, this is about Trike Fender Bra's and other forms of protection to keep the rocks,stones and bugs off yer trike. You may save the cost of a repaint on those fenders down the road. Check out the many forums to see what works best.
There are some concerns of water getting under the leather or leather look-a-like product bras and causing paint damage over time. Another concern is the yellowing of the plastic films over time and the difficulty in removing them. There is probably no ulimate solution other than avoiding rocks and bugs, which is difficult.
If you try these, like them and they work drop me aline and I'll post your notes to help others here.
