I appreciate the advice guys. It helps put things in perspective a little. I was probably a little on the conservative side as far as the condition of the paint though too. So let me rephrase...it STARTED as crows feet, but has since turned into oxidation and fading. The clear coat is going or gone on a majority of the top of the hood and the paint that has been exposed is fading significantly. So to me I was thinking, how could it look any worse. I would post a pic up but for some reason my phone isnt letting me. I will be talking to the shops in town though for a quote. I actually talked to a buddy of mine today who has a friend who is a painter...so I am also waiting to hear back on that.

I just had the hood repainted on a 2002 Tahoe that had some issues. I pulled the hood myself and took it to a local body shop and had it stripped and painted to match and clear coated. The total was $325 with tax. Just to give a rough idea of cost. Now you could also go with a louvered hood if it is not all over the hood.

My 03 started off like that. Now its flaking off completely, all the way to the bare metal. So if you're going to do it I would probably strip it completely and start from scratch. I've gotten quotes from $500 to $600 to fix it.

I thought about the louvered hood...but its on a good portion of the hood that the louvers wouldnt cover. Good idea though

whats the louvering going to help, your still gonna have effd up paint and it will be worse if you have it louvered its just going to break the exsisting paint when the louvers are punched.

They make an aluminum louvered section that pretty much covers the whole center section of the hood (the raised middle). If my shitty clear coat/oxidation was limited to that middle section the large louvered piece would have covered it all...however my bad paint extends past the center section, so the louvered piece wouldnt cover everything.

FWIW, spray cans are approx 25% paint and the rest is solvents and propellants....so at $20/can you'll need probably two cans for the hood....and then you will need to clear it on top of that....

It will be VERY easy to actually make the paint look worse than the crazing you have now....

Get a quote from a bodyshop...get a quote from Maaco....you might get a decent deal and if you could get it sprayed professionally for $300 or less that is well worth it in my opinion. Places like Maaco like to just be able to walk around the piece with a spray gun so ask if it would be cheaper if you removed the hood and have it to them off the vehicle. Maybe even have it scuffed or wetsanded for them first....

Take the hood off .....Yes.

Scuff it up for them ... NO. Most reputable body shops will do it again anyway. You're wasting time and they would prefer to see it in the original condition. Not to mention that you might not get it blocked down flat and smooth. Well-meant intentions, but not a good idea.

Course even if you did a louver you would have to have IT painted or powder coated...

I was thinking jeep math. You know the old fix/upgrade spend more money than you meant to and sneak it by the wife.
