My 2000 Expedition is losing the clear coat on the hood -- it's not peeling, but it's faded pretty severely in spots. The rest of the car looks fine except for the roof, which is a less-glaring defect to casual observers. I'm trying to figure out the cheapest strategy to make the hood look marginally less awful, so I'll have more money on hand for addressing life-or-death mechanical issues. Possible strategies: a) I could just repaint it in the EOM color, but the new paint probably wouldn't match the color of the rest of the vehicle all that well. b) I guess I could go with a totally different but complementary color, although they might leave me with even more of an eyesore. c) I could just park it out of the way where people won't see it. Thoughts?
