        Have used the Ford bra on mine since it was new in 2001. Most recently in late June. Use it for long road trips only. Put it on the day before, take it off the day after we return. It fits and looks great. I don't have an issue with the license plate bracket as I have a custom made front plate bracket instead of the factory bracket as I didn't want to use the factory issue bracket as it required holes in the valence panel. I can remove just the plate or the entire bracket easily. Went without a front plate until I got stopped for not having one. It took six years for that to happen, but that is a story for another thread. Plus the bra fits well around the new bracket.

          Apologize Guys as this isn't even a T-Bird issue but I have to say That Bird Folks know damn never everything and getting a reply on the Volvo site is like pulling teeth. Below is a post I previously made. The paint that was under the plastic covering did not get exposed to the elements and is consequently a slighty different shade than that which was exposed for 10 years. Hardly noticable but it is starting to drive me crazy. Any help on products that might help blend the two areas. Not really thinking we'll see anything but thought I'd ask.


          "I just bought a 10 year old retractable hardtop convertible that had this type of clear plastic covering and it was installed when new. At 10 years it had splits in the very top layer and dirt got into the cracks and it was filthy. Taking it off was a big deal leaving a glue paste that was a nightmare to remove. .
          After taking it off it did leave a line where the covered paint did not get exposed to the elements. "

            Bill, you might want to try the mustang ecoboost site. There's a guy on there who does professional detailing, including ceramic coatings. He seems to be very knowledgeable about all kinds of finishes and remedies. I believe you could find him in the forum about paint finishes. Guy goes by Paul-G and he's in Chandler, Az

              Lebra is also under the covercraft company!
              I ran my $66 LeBra cover on the bird during our 3 hour drive to Sanibel Island, it worked just fine.
              Tight fitting and not that hard to install/remove and mentioned on the first page of this thread...

              Not sure spending a bunch more money would have gotten me anything better.

                Glad to see this post as I've been curious about the cost for the ClearShield.

                While I actually have the OEM Tbird cover, I've never used it (or taken a long trip before).

                I noticed a neighbor's vehicle recently with ClearShield on the front end as well as the door edges and I liked that idea.

                Thanks again for your post.

                  Still have mine. Haven’t used it in years. Fit was good however the mesh they use rips easily. My wife repaired it a couple of times. Paid quite a lot back in 2006. Does protect against stone chips somewhat. Wouldn’t buy one again!
