If its alum, don't worry about rust, iron/steel is what you need to worry about

It's oxidation, my 05 did it. There was no primer on the underside, I had the hood repainted.

Once paint starts peeling theres not really a way to stop it. Its deffinitely not rusting, just repaint it or get a hood that you like better and throw it on

like I said, if its aluminium Do Not worry about 'rust', the paint on the other hand will cause headaches

Thats exactly happened to mine, i was gonna repaint it and the shop told me that it will just be a temporary fix cos it will come out again eventually. So i decided to go with this and its a hell of a lot better than stock.

All this is a known problem on all of the S197 mustangs do to the weld of the metals on the hood. Some worse than others...I would suggest that everyone monitor for paint bubbling on the seam under the hood....I have been told the only repair is a repaint with proper prep. I have also heard some that have caused damage to the exterior of the hood as well in the form of pitting. A few choices...repaint or replace.....or hope you are one of the lucky ones with no issues.

Do any of you have a clue on how much repainting would cost? I'm getting numbers like 300 all the way to 600.
