Ford wanted to just repaint the hood, but I made them put an all new hood on it and repaint that one. There is something going on about iron dust getting onto the aluminum at the factory and causing the issue.
gm is going aluminum also for the government rebates available. most dealers in my area are building new body shops or separate body shops to handle the aluminum contamination issues. that said most hoods have been aluminum for years, why now is it an issue?
