I had this problem on my 2006 GT.

I removed the hood, sandblasted and/or sanded the affected areas, shot a coat of zinc phosphate primer on the bare sections. On both sides of the hood.

I then shot a strip of Plasti Dip on the front edge of the hood, both sides.

We'll see how this holds up. Looks pretty good, it also covered up some of the stone chips that were on the front edge of the hood.

I'ld say a fiberglass hood has a good chance of being some heavier than the stock hood. Fiberglass ain't the lightest material.
