Hey guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com, here with the review and install of the Covercraft Colgan Custom 2-Piece Bra for the 2015 and newer S550 GT, V6, and EcoBoost Mustang. The Covercraft Colgan 2-Piece Bra is going to be for those S550 owners out there that are looking for the most protection from a custom fit bra and that don't mind paying a little extra for that extra protection. This bra is more heavy duty and covers more of the car's paint surface than any other cover option at this point in time. It's gonna cost a little more than other options for that reason, but this cover has more to offer than others. If we look at coverage first, this bra covers every piece of paint in the front-end leaving nothing exposed to possible damage. The only open areas are gonna be your headlights and your fog light and turn signal bezels, so your lights can still function properly. This will give you a mesh covering over the grille as well. But unlike other options that leave more of the front bumper around the grilles, and lower front fascia open, this bra covers all of the paint with its vinyl exterior. The bra covers the entire front fascia, so it wraps around under the headlights and covers the whole front bumper. But it even extends upwards and covers above the headlights and extends up to cover a good part of the hood as well. It sits a touch below the hood vents on the stock hood. Now the bra is a 2-piece bra, so you'll still be able to open the hood with your bra installed. It's very snug fitting, so it won't move around on the front of the car as you're driving either. And it has what Covercraft calls a memory fit system. That means it's gonna stretch and mold to the front of your car, so it fits well.Covercraft does make two different bras. One for the performance-packed Mustang and one for non-performance packs. So, just make sure you choose the right one for your car in the drop-down menu on the product page. The bra offers coverage from a vinyl exterior that's UV resistant. The underside of the cover is flannel, which is very soft, so it won't be abrasive to the paint since the whole point of this is to protect the paint from damage. One thing that I really like about this cover is the fact that it has tab and S-hook closures that are also flannel padded. This is something a little bit different about this bra, and it's a nice little touch. Some bras don't offer protection around the mounting points, which can leave your paint open to damage. The hooks and tabs will also make things easy to install and take off as well. When it comes to price, this is currently the more expensive option. Coming at a touch south of the $200 mark. But, like I said, this bra offers more coverage and protected hook closures as well. If you aren't interested in as much coverage, and you're looking to spend a little bit less, Covercraft does offer another bra that's about 70 bucks less that you can always check out instead. The install here is going to be very simple and straightforward. It's gonna be a one-out-of-three-wrenches on the difficulty meter and should take about 15 minutes to get on the car. You won't need any tools, and you won't have to take anything apart. You'll just be hooking the cover onto the car in the designated areas, and that's all it's gonna take. Wrapping things up here with the Covercraft Colgan 2-Piece Bra. This cover offers a ton of protection for the front-end of the S550. It's a UV resistant, vinyl exterior, a soft flannel underside, and it's designed for a snug, custom fit. You can check it out more online right here at americanmuscle.com.

I was skeptical about putting a bra on my car. Put putting the 3M clear was a bit pricey and sticking it to the paint and having to peel it off to do it again in a few years would have been causing damage to the paint as would the bra I was thinking. But when I received the bra and looking at it with the protective liner and looks to be made very well. Nice tight fit. And first look that bad.Helpful (0)

Something you should know
After receiving my first paint chip on the hood of my brand new 2017 GT I immediately began to search for ways to prevent any more of these from occurring. I did find that 3M made a clear bra. To cover the whole front was pretty expensive. Upon further research The American Muscle Colgan Original looked great and wasn't near the high cost of the 3M. I placed my order, received my merchandise promptly. It was exactly what was described. This isn't a bad review. It's a heads up for those car owners who like myself,may obsess over the cleanliness of their car. The only part of the bra that didn't exactly fit perfectly was the part that folded onto the trim of the wheel weld. It doesn't move much,but it does move. The biggest issue with this bra is that it traps dirt between itself and the car. Leaving a large dirt ring that may or may not Have sand or highway dust inbetween the bra and the car. Resulting in much much more than a chip out of your paint. More like swirling sand paper marks on your hood. The fix seems to be purchasing the 3M for the front of hood alone. Then when you go to put the Colgan bra on, there are no worries about scuffing the paint . The dirt it traps over the course of 3 days,is very much an issue. So make the purchase but weigh your options.Helpful (4)

Poor quality control and construction
I purchased one of these products for my 50th Anniversary Mustang, I shopped extensively to find the perfect front end cover and this one was (in my opinion) the perfect match for my Mustang. When the product arrived, I opened the package only to find that one of the upper fender clips wasn’t even sewn to the vinyl. It was just laying in the box. Upon further inspection I found that the quality of the materials were substandard when compared to other front end covers of the past. Especially those manufactured by, Lebra. A front end cover sold at this price point should have a feeling of quality, but instead it feels cheap and poorly made. I am very disappointed with the build quality of this product and would recommend anyone looking for a quality front end cover to explore other manufacturersHelpful (3)
Will this fit a 2017 GT California Special?
The Covercraft Colgan Original Car Bra does not fit the CS models.
Is there any way this will fit with the front bumper license plate bracket?
To install the front license plate bracket, it would require puncturing the cover. The cover does come with a warranty, however, this would unfortunately void any warranty on the cover.
Will this fit a 2019 mustang GT with pp1 ?
This is designed for Premium Chassis Packages Only (Trim Levels: 200A/201A/400A/401A) If your Mustang has one of these premium packages, this will fit just fine. If you are unsure if you qualify, we suggest contacting your dealership with your VIN for proper identification.
I have a wide body kit on my mustang, will this still fit?
TheCovercraft Colgan Original Car Bra will not work with a widebody kit.
I have a 2016 GT convertible premium, performance package, and using the front license plate with an OEM bracket. Which one will work without modifying the bra? Thanks JMg
The Covercraft Colgan Original Car Bra will not install properly with a front license plate installed.
At this time we have not received word of when a Covercraft Colgan Original Car Bra will be available. We do not manufacture any products, Covercraft would be the company that makes these.
Unfortunately Covercraft Colgan Original Car Bra is designed to only fit the 15-17 GT and EcoBoost Premium models. With the changes Ford made to the front end for the 2018 model year, there will more than likely be a new unit that will be released.
The Covercraft Colgan Original Car Bra will not be compatible with the Roush RS Mustang.
The Covercraft Colgan Original Car Bra is not pre-cut for a front license plate and would require modification to work.
We currently do not offer a Covercraft Colgan Original Car Bra that will fit a 2015 Ecoboost Premium Performance Package.
Please select item 397425-E of the Covercraft Colgan Original Car Bra - Black Vinyl if you have a 15 Roush Performance Pack w/ a Front License Plate, or item 397425-F if you have the Roush Performance Pack w/o a Front License Plate.
The Covercraft Colgan Original Car Bra will not fit the GT350.
This is specifically designed for the premium packages so this would not fit.
The Covercraft Colgan Original Car Bra is designed for the standard 15-17 Mustang Front end. It likely will not fit the chin splitter, and front fascia of your 2016 Roush Warrior.
No, the black vinyl Covercraft Colgan Original 2-Piece Car Bra is sized to fit the 2015-2017 GT and EcoBoost Mustangs equipped with the Premium Chassis Packages only.
