    What have people done to deal with the hood paint bubbling? I'm too broke to do a new hood or a full repaint, but before I just sand it and primer and just throw a bra to cover up the repair, I'm curious if someone has found a different paint or done pinstriping or something else to cover that spot.

    I had that on the underside of the hood. I just sanded, primed, painted, and it's been ok for years. I didn't clear coat it, so it doesn't look great, but at least the paint isn't bubbled, and you only see it when the hood is open.

    Heck if you do good prep you can put on Rustoleum and it looks fine.

    The hood is aluminum not steel.

    One option is some kind of vinyl stripe.

    You could also go to a smaller body shop and ask them what they could do for $100 or $200 or whatever you're willing to spend.

    Metallic? Or just do a semi gloss that matches?
