Key Features of Colgan Car Bras:
Colgan Car Bra Materials: The Right and The Wrong Approach
The basic Materials used in the construction of all Colgan Custom bras is, simply stated, a synthetic backed vinyl that resembles the average upholstery (naugahyde - type) material. However, the non-discernable differences are the vinyl coating and the non mar-backing. As the originators of the car bra Colgan started with the available upholstery materials. Colgan experienced many unexpected problems due mainly to temperature changes. The summer heat would cause the car bra to soften and become ill fitting. The covers would be almost impossible to install because of stiffness in sub zero winters. To circumvent this problem, all Colgan Custom covers are made from material with a special vinyl coating. This material was formulated some years ago, especially for Colgan, with this temperature problem in mind. As for the breathable materials, most breathables where developed for cushioning. This feature is fine for that purpose. Sitting on and getting up from cushions allows the intake and exhaust of air. Not so when this material is lying tightly over flat metal hoods, fenders, etc. in humid areas this feature allows moisture in faster than it allows moisture out. Also, the possibility exists that the abrasive dust may enter between the car bra and the vehicle finish. That potential hazard was quickly evident in Colgans early experiments with the breathable materials some years ago. Colgan material is time tested and proven. Nothing equal to it or better is currently available to manufacturers of this type of product.
Colgan bras vs. Other Brands The Colgan Challenge
Compare before you buy. Are the S hooks vinyl coated so the paint wont scratch? Are there loose parts supplied with the bra? How snug will it be at highway speeds? (Colgan Custom Bras are used in competition racing.) Are the side hooks double covered to prevent wear-through? Are the main seams top/double stitched for strength and a better contour-hugging fit?

Features that make Colgan Car Bras the best include:
Colgan Carbon Fiber Embossed Vinyl
Colgan Car Bra - 2 Material Choices
Colgan Crushed Embossed Vinyl
Benefits of a Colgan Bra Protects - Give your customers vehicle year round protection against nicks, stones, bugs and flying debris with a Colgan Custom Bra and Mirror Bra. Our flannel backed vinyl is 25% heavier than our competition. This provides added quality and protection.
Saves Money - When its time for you to trade in or sell your vehicle, a small investment now will mean much more value later.
Memory Fit - Memory Fit is a Colgan exclusive. Because of our specially fabricated vinyl and custom tailoring every Colgan Bra has a memory that assures a body hugging fit every time, and makes it the easiest bra to remove or reinstall.
Hot Looks - Fit is where great looks start, and nothing fits your vehicle as well as a Colgan Bra. It complements the vehicles lines and gives that sporty look so popular today.
Warning - If you buy another brand, a sloppy fit does more than detract from your vehicles looks. The bra movement you see can scuff paint, and the flapping, over time, can put small dents or chips in the finish.
The Road Test - At highway speeds, where you need the most protection, its obvious that Colgan Bras have been individually tailored to suit the vehicle. The fit stays snug with no paint damaging flap or flutter!
Multi-Piece Design - The multi piece bra was designed by Colgan over 25 years ago. Our bras today reflect the refinement and innovation were know for. The Colgan multi-piece design allows the hood, pop-up headlights and headlight wipers to operate normally. Beware of multi-piece brands which use snaps and/or Velcro that restrict normal operations.
Colgan Bra Styles Available 1-Piece Original Bra - Full front coverage protection for cars, trucks, vans and sport utilities. Available on early models or new models where a 2-piece would be impractical.
