You can sand the hood to get rid of the rest of the paint. Start with 1200 grit and work up through 2400 or 2600. It should be easy to polish it back to a nice shine from there. I have sanded clear (full size) tail lights with 800 grit and then simply clear-coated them. Brings them back to a beautiful clear shine.
