Apparently my 03 Avalanche is is going to have to have a new paint job on the hood. According to my body shop the 5.3 motors build a lot of heat and it being black doesnt help it. My hood has almost turned a grayish black color. It looks really bad. They quoted me about $400 to strip it and repaint it. Is there any other options to this that any one my know of? Also if the motor builds that much heat is there any thing i can do about reducing the heat? I just dont want to have to go through this again a few years later. Thanks for any info.
