Cover the front with a bra until you arrive at a solution. Yes, bras are not recommended; I used mine short-term in the fall when it is not too hot

The Lumar film is supposed to be the best, and I have heard if a rock hits the film and puts a small depression in the film, it will heal itself. Not so with other films I hear.
I have Xpel paint protection film on the front third of my car (not the lights). The film is tough and I love being able to scrub the bugs off with a dish brush. It won't stop rock dents if the rock is big enough (of course) but holds up pretty well to road debris. I've had it close to three years and I'm starting to get a few nicks in it. Paint looks fine under it but it looks a little less than perfect to me because I know where each on is and I wash it on a regular basis. I've been told they have a life span so it's not necessarily cheap on a per year basis if you count it as a consumable every 3-5 years.
