I once researched the long-term effects of car bras and found not tens, or twenties, but literally hundreds of people who reported that when a bra is removed after 3-5 years of use, that the entire surface under the bra was covered in hundreds of small surface scratches. This comes from dirt, sand, or whatever that works its way under the bra (frequently carried in by water) over time and then is trapped there, under tension and starts to slowly scratch/haze the surface.

I also spoke to a few body shops who told me that they had repainted many front ends that had been "protected" by bras.

So you won't get obvious dings in the paint, but you will alter the styling dramatically (some people like the effect) and you won't avoid paint scratches.
