I noticed that in the area of the lock many hoods have rust (Turbo or NA). My car is no exception. How can it be repaired?

The rest of the hood looks better than many SH hoods. It is rust free.

I did archeology in paint. 4 layers of paint (two red and two gray metallic)

I cut some of the metal sheet. I still have a bit to cut. Inside is exactly what I expected.

I'm waiting for the drills for removing the welding points given in the factory.
I ordered 3m weld thru. I also have rust inhibitor.

The plan is to remove the strong corroded metal. I will treat the surface corroded metal with a rust inhibitor.

In center: new sheet of metal and 3m weld thru.

The hardest part is ready! The hood is ready made of paper.

Now comes the easy part to make and a weld metal.

Very nice!
Check for rust starting where the naca duct is...i remember i fixed some rust there when i had the car....have a look now before painting if there isnt any rust going on beneath the paint.

On the other side was rust in the naca duct area. I cleaned the area well and gave it rust inhibitor. (a factory welding point with rust problems around).

I second that! Nicely done!

Did you paint it? I ask only because the first rule of thumb to show off your paint job is to not do it in doors under fluorescent or similar lighting but it really looks good

The hood was painted by a professional painter (cabin and special support for rotation). In the repaired area there are portions that look better than the rest of the bonnet. I have a straight beam in the garage ceiling and I studied how it is reflected in the hood in different areas.

The hood has received a generous layer of clear coat (lacquer) so it can be polished further more.

I hope the hood is a closed chapter.
