Im sure its "dealt" with, but I just like the tri-color white. Plus the fact Im moving south, that most of the paint up here is geared for harsh salt filled winter and I dunno how that would handle under "sea-spray" or exposure to salt spray from the ocean or extreme heat temperatures.

mine is mostly because of yes SALT and it is also cause of my car being so low (i think it is cause of weak coil springs) but the hood is right inline with that damn salt sprayer

I'm a little confused that your hood is in line with the salt sprayer. Are you following the salt truck so closely that the salt hits your hood?

My suggestion would be to distance yourself further back. Let the stuff hit the road instead of your car.
