What about getting you another hood from another car (same color) if they have it in stock???

If the manufacturers were smart they would offer this service and people would pay a premium for an oem paint job for bumpers, fenders and hoods.

Probably has something to do with the assembly line nature of the build process. May not be possible to interrupt the process to paint one hood.

Get a new car.

Question: does anyone else feel that the paint quality of your hood is different than the rest of the car? My hood blows compared to the rest of the car. Then, after seeing this?....

Good point. I wonder if it's painted separately. All of the other body panels are perfect. Trunk, top, fenders.......all great, but the hood has several spots where they painted over a small speck of foreign material.
