Re: Hood scoop help!!

Yah that's definitely your clear coat peeling off. Without the protection of the clear coat your paint is basically exposed to the elements.

As said, take it to a decent, reputable paint/body shop and have them wetsand it down, re prime, paint and clear it...depending on the quality and process the shop takes will usually determine the price...I wouldn't imagine it costing more than $100 to paint the scoop. The nice thing about black is that it's tough to screw up!

You can wait till you have the money , the clear coat will keep peeling until you have it fixed

The scoop is just plastic!.. So it's not like it will rust or anything like that!... It'll just look a bit off until you get it fixed!.. $75 for a shop to fix it is not half bad deal!.. Especially if they do it right!..

Tell them you don't want any tape/paint lines if they are not taking it off.
