I'm sure you're gonna get a "Please don't dig up old threads" in a minute... but until you do....

Where/how did you score a new hood for $200?

Default Bubbling Paint

I had the same issue with my 2000 SSEi. I thought it was because of the prior owner having a mask on the hood too long, but I found a GM TSB on the problem describing the paint adhession problem with the aluminum hood.

I had the hood repainted a few weeks ago and now it'* good as new.

BTW, I also had a corrosion (rust) problem around my gas cap. The paint was starting to bubble below the cap on the fender. I also had that fixed at the same time, but the body shop told me that it may come back and to keep an eye on it.
