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...

Good luck,
