You can have someone reclear and wet sanded. It will look 1000x times better but some of the cracks you will still be able to see from certain angles..

Here's a few of my trunk before and after.
Before


After


Like I said from certain angles you can still see some cracks. But I'm glad I had it fixed.

Killa your trunk isn't as nearly as bad as the op's hood is cracked beyond repair honestly I would paint it his

Due to the angle of that before picture you can't see all the cracks. If the pic was from the other side you would be able to tell. But for 150. It was worth to take the risk to have it fixed. But in certain spots it was bad, really bad. The whole top of the trunk had cracks. Some of the deep cracks are still there. And it was faded. I'd say mine was very comparable to the OP.

In my opinion I'd have it recleared.. It's only gonna cost you 125. Vs what ever someone is gonna charge to paint/clear it. Then you could run into it not being paint matched perfect to the rest of the car.

that trunk came out good...yeah my hood is pretty bad...I don't understand how it got like that...I really don't want to paint it...before I paint it I rather buy a stock hood but since money is an issue I thought that for $125 I could have it looking good at least...this sux man...it really makes the car look bad...ill take a pic of the whole hood so you can see better...in those pics I got really close to the cracks but either way its pretty bad...I guess the heat from the turbo kills these things on the top part...

It's the crappy gel coat they put on cf hoods and trunks. Mine is starting to look hazy and if you get it recleared it will look nice with actual car clear.

$600 to blend is good price, and costs about 300-500 just to paint a bumper at a shop!

Nah doesnt take bullet proof paint. paint isnt cheap at all plus you have to pay for their utilities, the painter, any body work that needs to be done, sanding, solvents buffing compound, someone to buff it and not to mention someone to put on and remove theres alot more to it than what alot of people realize.
