Wouldn't you still see the stonechips ?
The OP noted that he is planning on respraying the bonnet. The bra/transparent protectors are to protect his new paint.

OP, the bra would look nice if it didn't have those stretch marks. Out of the 2 I would go with the transparent protectors.

However, I'm about the get my front end resprayed due to chips! (front bumper, bonnet and fenders). I'm not sure if I should do the rear bumper lip section due to the factory orange peel or not though. I have spoken to the sprayer about the strength of the new paint as none of my other cars (which includes 2 other Hondas - A DC2 Integra and a GD Jazz/Fit) have so many chips etc. I would prefer no protection to cover my new paint. He told me it will be much stronger than the factory paint. So I'm actually not going to cover it up at all and hope that it's as strong as my other cars.

u mentioned the paint is going to be stronger than standard? is it any special type of paint or is it because the civic paint is weak?
