I'd say a repaint would be the best thing to do. I've heard horror stories of what bra'* do to cars so I'd stay away from having one on all the time.

Get a bottle of the correct touch up paint from GM. They will need your VIN number. Also, see if you can get the little touch-up kit they sell (p/n 12378179), it has a neat little glass fiber cleaning probe and also comes with clear coat. You can do a fairly good job with this if you take your time.

In addition to the advise from TelePlayer you may want to check out Mothers Paint Chip Repair kit. It runs around $12.00 and does a nice job if you take your time.
