Your absolutely right Brian...it's so hard to tell and that's why I was wondering if the cracking was anywhere else. In many cases like this, if the person who painted it saw what was happening and he was honest, the paint problem would be solved immediately. If it's only the hood that's cracking (not the sides, not the cowl not the tops of the fenders or any adjacent panel) the painter screwed up. How about this...the truck got painted, everything looked good except the hood, maybe to much dirt, a big bug right in the middle of the hood, whatever. The truck had to go and they had to put everything back together so take the hood off, re-shoot it while the other guys reassemble the truck....the painter pounds the paint on, throws the hood on the truck and see ya later. I've seen that happen more than once in a body shop (not the cracking paint part so much but taking a hood off to repaint it while the rest of the truck is getting the bumpers headlights grill etc. put back on it so it can leave a 5 o'clock)
