Detail before or after clear bra?

Im planning to get a clear bra installed. But not sure if i should have the car properly detailed beforehand. I've been getting mixed answers on other websites. Some say have the paint corrected and swirls removed first and some say the clear bra should cover those up. Not sure what to do.. Any advice would be greatful! Thanks.

i'm actually thinking of doing the same thing. it appears to me that doing the detail prior to the bra makes better sense.

I installed my own - and I really wish I had clayed the car first, I think it would have made installation go much smoother (no pun intended...). The material didn't slide around like they showed it would in the videos, so I ended up doing much more removing/re-seating and stretching than I would have liked.
