Welcome to the forum!


And if you hood is prepped correctly it should not rust again. It just depends.

Welcome. I work in a body shop and to me that sounds like the guy is being lazy and doesn't wanna fix it, he will make more money if you have him get you a new hood. Take it somewhere else. Shouldnt cost you much ill get you a good quote here in a minute.

Your looking at about $300 to refinish the hood, just depends on the shops labor price.

so you think it would be $300 just to fix the hood? & then plus whatever they charge for the paint job...

Welcome to the forum. If the job is done correctly it should not rust again.

That assumes it's only surface rust, and that there are no holes in it.

+1, but it may be cheaper to buy a new hood and have it painted depending on how much they want for the prepping (sanding and such will be more costly than just spraying a new), but I wouldn't know if the cost difference would be worth it.
