Clearbra yellowing slightly....

Hey guys,

Sorry if this has been posted before but I can't search on the iPhone app.

I'm wondering if anyone has clearbra'd their AW. I wrapped my full front and rear bumper a few years ago and it's yellowing slightly/ becoming a bit more visible.

Anyone else have this issue or end up re-wrapping it? Any idea on the lifetime of the film?

Most of the time, the "yellowing" is because of deposits that get into the film. It's not actually the plastic, but road grime.

First, clean it with this:

Then, seal it with this:

If the cleaner doesn't take the yellow out, chances are that it's permanently stained and you'll have to get it replaced. The clear bra is not a maintenance-free solution, but with the right care, it'll last quite a while.
