I could imagine a belt or rivets on jeans could cause some scratches... probably best to use that blanket

only thing i can think of is this. some of those hoods MIGHT be plastic... (the company i work for makes a lot of plastic hoods.) and i can't say i'd put that much weight on a composite hood. i know indivudaly you aren't a lot of weight but combined its upwards of 300#. the way that composite hoods are made is an inner and an outer... you woun't damage the outer (except maybe paint) but the bond between them might be weakend.

BUT if bonnevilles never had plastic type hoods then disreguard that whole bit there...

well mine'* not a Bonneville, but I assume they would be built pretty much the same, I dont think I have a composite hood, doesnt really sound like something GM would do on these type of cars.

So would the paint damage come from things like belts and rivets on jeans, or would paint damage come from the metal flexing then returning to its position? or both?

Battery posts either top or bottom are no where near the hood... you are totally safe there.

The only thing you need to be worried about is small dings that'll show up after the flexing..

well whats really weird is i dont remember the hood flexing when we were both on it, she was on the passenger side and i was mostly on the driver side, and i dont remember any flexing at all.

But i was on it by myself last night, playing my guitar (feeling very emo mind you), and I kept noticing it flex at times, when id move around and stuff.

Ill try to keep an eye on things, and the first sign of paint damage i see...no more hood laying!!

unless I can get her to do something like Alien'* girl which....would be very nice, and give Alien'* girl some good competition.

ive layed on my hood, sat on my hood and trunk of all my cars many times, and ive never caused any damage. the biggest danger here is the metal rivets in jeans, or snaps on pockets scratching the living hell out of the paint
