I was wondering if anyone can recommend a reputable paint shop here in Los Angeles area that can repaint a severely faded roof and hood on my 300DT.
I am new to this forum but I am sure there are many talented and experienced people here that will be able to help... and I do appreciate it. :)

Is the clear coat peeling? If not try a bit of rubbing compound (turtle wax or glass top stove cleaner if you have it) and try hand rubbing a spot to see if the shine comes back, if it does take it to a detailer and have them "buff" it out, they don't even have to wax it you could do that at home, it would probably cost about $150 for a detailer to "buff" it.

Yes, the clear coat is completely missing in about 50% of the hood and the roof and all I see is whitish to grayesh batches looks like the color coat is gone too. I am sorry may be I did not use the proper terminology of the condition in my post but the hood looks terrible... Thank you for your quick response.
