Really random question but I keep seeing people with these things fitted to their cars and its bugging me what their actual use is.
It looks like its made from flexible material, is about a foot across. Kind of looks like a big black elastic band around the bonnet. It then has 2 little flaps on it, one kind of inline with each font seat of the car.
I have no idea what its called so google is useless!:o)
Anyone know what the use of these devices are? I had concepts of it being an areo device to improve flow over the car but suspect its my F1 geekyness getting away with me.
Yes, car-bra. Usually to stop stones from doing damage to the paintjob. The flaps are there to stop debris/stones from hitting the windows. Some rallye cars had similar devices. Today it’s only used by douches.
The funny bit is, since he usually doesn’t polish the car, the sun bleaches the rest of paint, but the bit underneath the bra is still shiney. Which means the bonnet is basically ruined, even though it is there to save the paint from damage…
