Have you considered doing it yourself? You can get the small tube of touch up paint or an aerosol can for $10-$12. You can also buy aerosol cans of clearcoat, and oxidation can be buffed to make it look better. It would be a simple project for you and way cheaper than taking it to a shop.

Nothing you can do for the hood other than repaint. You say its peeling and oxidized. Im thinking its more of a delamination issue. Needs to be sanded then re painted.

And it will look like he spent $10-$12 dollars on it also. Waste of time and a half case of beer

Oh crap, I forgot to mention the beer. And I wasn't talking show
room restoration. Probably should see pictures of the areas that need work and find out if they want it to look like new or just get it to a better state for the time being.

I spray painted my hood in a few areas, and I brought the clearcoat aerosol too. But, I haven't used the clearcoat yet. I don't think mine looks like a $10-12 dollar touch up. If you look close on the hood, you can see the lack of clear coat, but you have to know where to look.
