The hood has cracked paint, chips and clear coat was coming off. The roof had the same issue and fender flares had clear coat coming off. Now she looks almost new.

Mind sharing what you paid? my clear coat is shot on the hood and upper fender flares, best quote so far is $1,300 (dfw)
The top and hood had to be sanded down to bare metal which bumped the cost. Total was $2,100.
I'm sure being as the hood is aluminum was the reason they had to get the base clean and oxide free to get such a beautiful finish.
That is exactly what my paint guy said

My rattle-canned 2k clear coat job is making me real jealous of how yours came out! I can't believe how shiny it looks!

My paint was already oxidized from the lack of clear coat, and I can't get the new clear coat I sprayed on to shine no matter how much I polish/ wet sand it down...
I tried that on my wife's car - never could get it to smooth out and shine. Didn't look bad, just could not get the shine.
