Bearclaw, I can't give a recommendation, but I can tell you this: before you weigh options, get an actual price from those chains. Their advertised price is never what they actually charge. And look them up on Yelp first, too. There's some pissed off people out there. After doing that research, I ended up refinishing my peeling hood with spray cans. Turned out pretty good!

That was my fear! What did you seal it with. I just want it to stop looking like a leper and the fiberglass on the shell breaking down, couldn't care less about the color...

I think I used the brand "automotivetouchup", but honestly, I think you're fine with paint from your local shop. My neighbor did the same thing with autozone paint, and it looks good. I ended up spraying a primer, color, and clear coat, after sanding down to bare metal (I had rust). So, I guess the clear coat was the sealer. If you sand the clear coat off, I don't see why you can't reapply a color and clear coat. But I'm a hack, so am not entirely sure.

Meh... I do I suppose the right kind of chics do. Wish I'd waited a little longer this last time and found one of *those* kinda ladies. Every once in awhile you come across an actual Unicorn out there. A chic that pays attention to detail and does herself up... but then actually like things like going dirtbike riding, etc. I've seen....maybe.... 3.... in my life so far. Usually seems ya have to give up a significant bit in the looks department to get more in the outdoorsy department. I raise my glass to the lucky fellows that managed to find the Unicorns and locked it down early!

QUESTION: On one side my clearcoat is screwed. Years earlier at a friends house we home re-did the clearcoat on that side but it is succumbing to peeling at this time.

I'M CURIOUS TO KNOW IF... I can wrap over a body panel where it is partially clear-coated and partially not?

If you're concerned with the state of your paintjobafter you remove the wrap - I wouldn't worry about the metal surface, however the wrap will screw up the paint on all plastic surfaces guaranteed. Ask me how I know...
