How do I stop this from getting worse (pic)



Who ever painted my hood (previous owner) did a poor job and now my clear coat is flaking off, it started off as a speck and has grown to this.

Thought about super glue around the edge but idk, any body guys out there have any suggestions?

Once the clear coat is gone, you need to paint it again. You can wax the crap out of it and it will blend better, as well as put off rust, but it needs paint.

Re-paint, I was afraid of that. Just makes me mad because the paint job is less than two years old and the guy didn't take the time to do it right. Is that dark green a hard color to do a color change, I really like the blue/teal super duty's.

If the paint is that new, a good shop *should* be able to paint match for you. Even easier if you can get the color code from the PO.

Just be warned, I got a guesstimate for getting my hood and roof painted... A little over $1K from a good shop. I'm saving for whole new paint job instead, which will be over $3K, but I want a color change.

To try and save a lil $ wet sand it yourself with some 320 or 400 grit. With the case with your clear gone from the area dont be alarmed when you see the paint stat to to out in the water. You aretrying to feather the clear back to make a smooth transition. Once it is feather prime, feather the primer to paint, seal and paint. You have 2 options. Get your whole hood painted, which will be a lil more$. Orsome people will tell you that they can spot it in and burn some clear back in the area. I dont recommend that especially in the dark color. With time you will see the repair and not be happy. Good luck

Plasti-dip some racing strips on the hood until the money is there for a re paint.
