wrong. just that affected area needs to be striped (think of it like rust, just not )

to put a stop to it i think you would have to peel back the seam, grind away all the corrotion and hammer it back down with some seal sealer or 3M panel bond in it, Its alot of work and i would say its almost as cost affective for them to just buy you a new hood all together

also, you dont have to take it to just a Pontiac dealer, any GM dealer would do
How can that be wrong? He didn't say, but the OP alluded to the fact that the new bubbles are in a different area than the first time. And when I talked to the body shop manager on mine, he said it'* possible that it could pop up somewhere else. So why only do a portion of the hood and have it start bubbling somewhere else a year later?

Default Hood Bubbling

I bought a used 2001 Bonneville with bubbling paint and GM replaced the hood and painted it for no charge. All was covered under the corrosion warranty. Any questions email me at [email protected]

I wonder if you got lucky. I thought of this when I bought my 01. The warranty basically says it has to be a hole to be covered.

It'* wrong because the only reason the hoods bubble is because of bad seams, it starts there and spreads out. I personaly have never seen it start in the middle unless there was a chip in the paint (which stripping wont prevent anyway) all that you will acheave by stripping the whole thing is to expose all the metal to oxygen and moister which my lead to what your trying to prevent anyway. Al the MOST i can only see the whole front edge stripped down, treated then primed (quickly as possible)
