I used on the hood piece on my 93. Had no problems, but I was anal about 3 coats of hard wax every two months underneath.

After the 93'* hood is repainted, I'll use it only on long trips. It does save the front of the car from a beating.

That'* for a small bra, I'm looking at one of those because my hood is already chipped and scratched to ****. I repainted part but it still looks like crap, so I think a black vinyl cover will look better.

agreed. i had a terrible experience with a bra/hood protector on one of my previous cars.

When I was driving home from college most weekends (280 mile round trip) I had a bra on my white 92 SSE. It kinda yellowed the paint on the hood. The yellow went away after a while, but not the line of scratches. I've got a new hood now for other reasons.

I don't put a full bra on mine. My hood protector is more like a .......neck scarf. Just to keep the rocks from chipping the paint on the freeway. Front edge of the hood only, but same material as the bra.
