Do you really want a "bra" on your car? (flame mode = on)
My mom's '95 has paint chips gallore on the hood, and I have to confess,
it doesn't look good. Interestingly, my '90 has virtually no chips.
This leads me to believe that driving style may play a role. Keeping
larger distances from cars and trucks seems to be a good idea. If
everyone is going, oh, 30mph slower than you are, this might be hard...

Alternatively, what about putting a couple layers of colored electrical
tape on the edge of the hood? With good color match, it is probably
unnoticeable from a distance. I only wonder it provides enough
buffering from stones...
