HoneyBadger After some searching someone mentioned clear vinyl. You just get a sheet and cut to fit. Price isn't that bad might cover better than the magnet one, just don't know how it will hold up. Pretty cheap though.

Then again, $125 for a real ClearBra on the hood seems pretty cheap so that might be the better option to go with.
Why would you do the whole car if your just trying to protect your car from rock chips?

SOLD! I am buying one. 50 bucks isn't bad and it actually protects it. The hood is the only spot I am worried. To bad I didn't see this earlier though.

Budderybunz Yes, you would want 3-4 layers for easy removal

yeah but if you ever want to peel it off in one nice piece, you need to build up the layers.
