welcome
a few people still lurk around here

I don't like your hood either ! LOL
my Idea isn't amazing but
I would beat those ugly spots down and away with a da sander
scuff up the rest and shoot it the bare spots with primer first
and then with color and clear

white is the easiest color to work with and match
it would be possible to do something respectable with spray cans
if you do not have the right equipment .like a compressor to spray
or run a da sander with.
I would get a paint stripper wheel for a drill and go over the ugly spots with that
and hand sand/scuff up the rest
you can get a epoxy primer from Eastwood in a can
and you can get clear in a spray can from them also
the color you can get from autobody touchup in a can
good luck

are you looking to just repair or replace? fastscions has a bunch of hoods or rockauto for OEM stuffs.., i got carbon fiber for 2010 xb2 and i love it.. matched color and what not.

otherwise, i agree, strip it down, sand, paint and buff, a weekend project for sure!! lol

Because our cars are as aerodynamic as a brick, the bumper cover, hood leading edge and windshields are very prone to rock chips. White is also a color that has issues for some reason. Ford, Dodge and GM have all had their share of issues with white paint not bonding properly. I seem to remember white 2nd Gen xB's also have some issues. A rock deflector or bra would be a good investment. A weekend with some sandpaper, primer and paint will get you started.
