Help! My hood is corroding

My paint is bubbling and coming off my hood. What can I do to stop this or slow it down because I am not financially ready to buy a new hood. It's a 2006 gt btw.

Is the paint stock from the factory?

I'd take it to a paint/body shop ASAP, the worse it gets the more expensive its gonna get, I'd get it there tomorrow if possible and it could be a cheap quick fix

How much would it cost to paint a new hood?

I had a very similar issue on my 2005. I was told that the seam where the metals meet are highly suspect to this issue. As a matter of fact I would bet that nearly everyone from 2004 on up have this issue in various conditions. I regularly check the seams all around my hood as this appears to be the only area with the problem. Only repair is to sand,primer and reprint.

I had a local shop paint mine it was $300. On my hood they also had to work in removing the hood scoop and reinstall.
