My 2001 LS has peeling clearcoat on the hood. I don't know why or how but it looks horrible. I really don't want to spend $600 to $1000 to get the hood repainted. Is there some kind of "do it yourself" procedure I can do to make it look better? (I'm not looking for perfection)

Not likely... most shops charge upwards of $2k-$3k to vinyl wrap a car

Only DIY tip I can give you is to take it off, sand down all the clear, spray it with your factory color, clear, wet sand, clear.. $75 in parts not including the spray gun and compressor

Or find a parting out of the same color and just switch.. $100-200 Keep your eyes on Craigslist, I always find part outs on there.. a few months ago there was a navy blue parting out in Central NJ

Or PlastiDip, but that would look odd, to even it out you should do the roof and the trunk lid too..$36

Or find a training academy (ie Vocational Technical School) and they might have their students paint it, you would just pay for paint, clear and probably sandpaper

Have you done vinyl before? If not, you are simply throwing $500 out the window..

Better yet, donate that $500 to NAIOA, it will be put to far better use...

I had a hard time wrapping my wood dash trim. Good luck doing a hood being a novice...

Honestly they are independently owned. Some really are better than others.

Also, if you do all the prep work, and just use them for the spray/clear he could get a pretty decent job for cheap.
