When it comes to the aesthetics of your vehicle, few parts are as important as the almighty bonnet. As arguably one of the most prominent parts of any car, the bonnet is visible by passengers and other drivers alike, and for many manufacturers it's the opportunity to make a statement. That may be with a bit of hood ornamentation or perhaps a decorative scoop, but either way the stylistic impact can be significant.
Of course, the bonnet is also functional, providing a layer of protection to your engine, while allowing easy access when you need to change the oil or top up wiper fluid. Accordingly, when it comes to protecting the exterior of your vehicle, the hood should be one of your top priorities.
That's where bonnet protectors come in - easily attaching to the front of your hood and deflecting debris away from the car. This might be dirt, stones or even bugs, but all will be turned away in order to preserve the integrity of your ride's paint job. After all, scratches and nicks can be repaired, but it's far better to simply prevent them from occurring in the first place, especially in such a prominent area.
Bonnet protectors aren't just there to provide a bit of extra security, they look great too, and are a fantastic way to add a bit of flair to an otherwise typical vehicle.
The Motoquipe range
Like many of our exterior vehicle accessories, Motoquipe's selection of bonnet protectors are manufactured by Protective Plastics - one of Australia's leading aftermarket supplies. As a result, you can rest easy knowing that the material, shape and fit are all perfectly adapted to the occasionally rugged environments we experience here in the land Down Under - whether that's rumbling through the outback or down the Great Ocean Road. The material itself is specialised impact-resistant acrylic, so even the sharpest of pebbles will find themselves coming up short when they get kicked your way.
The bonnet protectors come in two different colours, depending on your own personal taste and of course the vehicle you plan on fitting it to. For a subtle look, the stealthy clear option is just the thing, but if you're looking to make a statement, the dark tint certainly adds a touch of class. To get the perfect look you'll also need the right fit, which is why all of Motoquipe's bonnet protectors are tailor-made for specific vehicles. Whether you drive a Ford Falcon or a Holden Berlina, we've got the perfect match for your hood.
Finally, to make things as easy as possible, all of our bonnet protectors are sold online along with the rest of our extensive car accessories range.
The bottom line
Your car would look a whole lot different without a bonnet, and a whole lot worse with a poorly maintained one. Avoid coming face to face with this problem by investing in a bonnet protector and keeping your ride looking swish, even in the toughest conditions.
