Hood Removal

Can't wait to hear about your results. My hood is faded and I cannot seem to bring back any shine to it at all. Quit trying years ago. Checked with a friend about a repaint, but 15K was not in my budget. That was for the whole truck, didn't think of just doing the hood. I'm sure the prices have gone up a lot more, by now.

Carl    When I was headed to the ECR in 2016 i painted the hood in the back yard. Looked real good and the price was right. Just takes time to tape and some fore thought about how you are going to reach the highs and the lows. Be sure to be careful with over spray. Find a body man/painter  and have him spray it. Just a thought.   Pat

fellas....i am in the process of building my retirement vehicle and i just finished repainting it last week. it is a 2007 volvo vn780. painting the hood is pretty easy to do, need a few supplies. i can walk you thru painting with a single or two tone color so long as fancy mural stuff aint involved. shoot me a message and i will call or text to help out. i sprayed my truck with single stage urethane paint and it works great, shines great and is easy to work with. highly recommend the 3M paint gun with removable tips and cup above. could probably paint your hood for under 1k with buying all supplies.

Don't worry about it. We have a few folks from Tennessee on here so this is not uncommon...

They’re not upside down if you’re standing on your head David!  Jeez thought even someone from Georgia could see that.  🙄🙄

I just got a "friend of a friend deal" quote to paint my whole truck and bed......$15k. It needs doing so it will happen, I just need to find the vaseline first.

How did a man walk AROUND THE WORLD??  One step at a time.  I have multiple paint projects and I am breaking them down into pieces so they dont seem so daunting.  First one is failing clear coat on my Teton:  $12K for a complete single stage/1 color paint job.  I bought the material and will just respray the clear.  Most painters will say it wont last, well I need 5 years and then it will likely be someone elses, so it will work for me and get me around my world.

I guess its mostly about your objective.

Here is the final solution.  Had several quotes to repaint entire hood.  Cheapest was $4500 if I removed the hood and took to the shop.  Auto body/paint shop.  Quote from Volvo dealer was $5000 for hood and they would not have to remove.  They had truck paint booth.  Dealer cost to JUST repaint mid panel $1500.  I elected for dealer to just spray bed liner like bumper and roof….cost $870.  It’ll last me five years.  Not ideal but workable and looks okay,

I'll bet it will last longer than 5  years. Too bad they didn't offer to tint the bedliner, but I have seen that stuff fade pretty fast, at least the red stuff.
