I plan on doing somewhat of a road trip with my car. Its probably 3000+ kms, and i am wondering about taking care of my baby. I thought about it and i realized one major factor to highway driving is hood chips. Is there anything i can do to prevent that? I could buy a bra, but i think they're kind of costly for just this single road trip. I also thought about tape they use on brand new cars when they are shipped. Any suggestions???
Thanks

I'm planning on doing the same thing (road trip) and was wondering what I could do as well. I was thinking of this paint protectant/sealant thing but haven't heard anyone talking about it.

you're crazy

you have to worry about bugs too, those dent, i had about 6 big dragonflys all over my front bumper and some even scratched it, it's a fact, it will scratch,.... you will get chips, i have a ton of them, and my car is just now 5 months old....:( bumper will just need repainted every few years, that or a bra, ::gag::

crappy deal....

I m still thinking taping some vinyl material across the bumper and the hood would do better than nothing at all. I just don't think its neccesary for me to invest in a bra for a one time use. I know if i got one, id never use it again.
