No Wise-A** answers please :eek::
I have the GM ZO6 Bra & according to the instruction booklet, so long as it stays dry, they say you can leave it on indefinitely. Kinda strange since I had the standard GM Bra on my "00 Coupe, & the instruction booklet advised NOT to leave it on for extended periods. Anyone know why??

I can't comment on the text issue, but there's no harm in leaving it on for awhile as long as it's fitting properly, the underside is clean and it doesn't get wet. It's good to take it off and clean both the car and the underside of the mask periodically because dirt/sand will accumulate (particularly in the clasp area) and stuff can get underneath it. That's more of an issue with the Z style that has openings for the screens, and it's one reason some Z owners use the standard mask.

Otherwise, how often it depends on where you live and how you use the car. It's a good idea to take it off when you wash the car (although you can wash around it), so that's a reasonable period.

I leave it on between washes. I always Zaino the nose before putting the bra back on. And I wash the bra each time also.

Ms. Cathy removes her bra every night. She wanted us to know. :p

There are several reasons to take it off. You wouldnt believe the crap that can collect behind it. Dirt, scum, moisture, leaves, bugs, small rocks. Not to mention the UV rays not getting to the covered parts. Besides, I have never seen one yet that didnt rub somewhere against the paint, fender, bumper, etc. I was going to get one for my 04 but decided against it. :cheers:

Have the GM Z06 Bra and leave it on unless it is raining or washing the car.

Been doing it for 16 months now and I have a perfect paint finish on the areas of the nose that it protects.

No other way for me! :usa:

I know what you're saying, but on highway drives i think the bra is definitely the lesser of 2 evils. I've seen what the results of driving without one can look like!

I leave it on. I think you would do more damage taking it on and off. My paint is perfect under the bra.
