Default Anyone else have this hood problem? And, what to do?

Over the years I've had four 944's, everyone of them has ended up with dents in the hood from careless folk pressing down on the hood to close the hood. Now, before you all say "you shouldn't let anyone touch the hood" (or whatever), realize I have owned 944's for over 22 years, and believe me, I've tried. No matter how careful I am, sooner or later a well meaning friend/acquaintance/newbie-at-the-shop drops the hood and presses down on it leaving a nice noticeable dent. I have lost count of the number of trips to the body shop. Am I the only one this happens to?

Before this happens again... does anyone know of a way to reinforce the lower section of the hood? Other "solutions"?? ...tired of this s**t.

I'm destined for eventual 968 ownership. Does the 968 hood dent so easily?
