Or else you might consider a plastic bug deflector like the one I saw on the 1996-1999 SE yesterday. I saw the car sitting in a parking lot so I drove up to it and all I could see on the deflector was "Form Pic". It wasn't a one fit'* all deal. It was contoured to the Bonneville hood. All I know is I want one now and it actually looked cool.
I would have talked to te owner to see where they got it, but I din't have time to wait.

well, you could try not to drive too close....it'* inevitable that you'll get stone chips, etc, that way. The bra can actually make the paint WORSE since it can hold water and the paint will actually fade due to the heat in the summer that the black bra attracts & traps.

the plastic bug deflector is labeled "Form Fit" (not Form Pic). It is manufactured by Focus Auto Design in Calgary, Alberta. In my area, Focus Auto Design products are distributed by the local Pontiac dealer. I ordered mine today, it is part number HD1622S (for 92-99). It should arrive mid-next week

The bug deflector would help with the hood and windshield but most of my problem is with my front bumper. I even noticed today my passenger'* side headlight has been hit also. Maybe I will look into clear headlight covers also.

I'm kinda in the same boat for these things as well. I need something to protect my hood, and front end. My college is 80 miles from my hometown, and it has it'* share of trucks and gravel and such. My front end has some chips in the paint, and i've got a nice wax job on there now, and i'll put another one on right before the meet i bet too. I'll also be in a college parking lot, so anything that can help is appreciated. I swear if i get hit...... Don't be surprised if i start posting from a jail..

The Hood protecter you guys mentioned is just the hood half of the bra. It'* just as easy to pull that off, as the top part of the bra, (which is the most important one to clean on our cars) I found LeBra full bras for $59 bux at JCW. We had one on our ol pontiac transport and it was always fine, and fit good. I can only imagine they are better now. THe one SSEi95 pointed out looks good, but it is really $$$$. If i don't like the Lebra one i'll probably get that one but I'll definetly let you guys know what it'* like.
