You live in the greater Atlanta area and have just purchased a new car. The dealership has attempted to sell you clear bra but you’ve heard how much they mark it up, are unsure of the ability of their installer and have decided to search for a qualified installer yourself. How do you find the most qualified clear bra installer in the Atlanta area? Let us explain why Detailed Designs Auto Spa is the best solution for your clear bra installation needs.
Let me take a moment to give you some insight into the clear bra installation market and why it’s important that you’re critical of who installs your clear bra.
For clear bra installers, there are a few routes for going from not installing clear bra to being considered an “installer”. The most preferable routes are either training under another qualified installer, and hoping you’re not being trained with poor habits or an uncritical eye, or you travel to a training center to receive training that lasts only a few days. The other route is to buy a bulk roll of film and just start installing and figure it out as you go. But just because someone received training or they learned on their own does not equate to quality installations while ensuring there is no damage created. The X-factor in clear bra installation is the eye for detail and mentality of the installer. Some guys are just not cut out to install film because they are hung up on being fast, trying to salvage installed film that should be replaced or don’t care to give it the added time and attention it requires.
A large amount of dealerships appear to use the guys who buy bulk film and wing it on the install. This is apparent when looking at an installation that has inconsistent edges. The draw for many installers and dealerships who use this type of installer is that there is lower overhead. Using the computer run vinyl plotters to cut the precision patterns is expensive and requires a location to cut the patterns. We believe there is a place for custom cut installations. But that it should mostly be kept for installations that do not have precision computer cut patterns available.
Unskilled bulk installers regularly cut through the film which causes cuts in the paint. It’s not unusual for us to remove another bulk installers film and find cuts to the paint.
Detailed Designs Auto Spa has 3 large format plotters. Our goal is to be able to offer the highest quality precision cut patterns. We’ve been trained by industry professionals from multiple training institutes and have years of real world clear bra installs. We are trained and qualified to safely perform custom clear bra installations as well as installing computer cut patterns.

My staff and I give you what we would give ourselves for a given service. With our high standards, this translates to quality that is by itself in the Atlanta area. Quality is assured because I take the lead on every project.
What Detailed Designs Auto Spa is not, is a volume shop. In the automotive industry, the big bucks are in volume work which typically translates to dealership work. We’ve focused on caring for automotive enthusiast and the more demanding retail clients. Our integrity to quality forbids us from pursuing volume work. By focusing on clients like you, we are structured to make you our #1 priority.
Detailed Designs Auto Spa has a commercial shop that is dedicated to our craft. We are conveniently located just 13 minutes outside of 285 and less than 1 mile from I-20.
Detailed Designs Auto Spa has a track record of providing some of the finest paint correction services in the United States. Our extensive knowledge of exterior paint care gives us an upper hand when it comes to the preparation and installation of clear bra on automobiles. Many shops choose to take the quickest routes possible when it comes to preparation of the paint for clear bra installation. This leads to extensive damage to the clear coat. Nobody wants swirl marks, marring or scratches in the finish of their new car. Using a shop that specializes in paint correction, like ours, ensures that if/when the clear bra film is removed the paint looks as good as when you left it with us.
