Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

They do screw up the paint but if you're trying to cover up some blemishes they work for that. You didn't say what year Metro you have but here's one on a 91 vert. It takes a different one for the 92-94 Metros.

i have used the hood part of a bra set quite often. especially on the sloped nose metro hoods, the cover keeps rocks from chipping paint. so in effect, the bras help protect the car from damage.

the bra on this car didn't do a very good job of protecting it from trees, though. :-P

I don't like those bra's, specially on a swift. What's the point on protecting the hood's paint anyway, if it'll never be seen?
