You can use the regular chalkboard paint from Lowes/Home Depot/local craft store. I sprayed down some primer before spraying down the chalk board paint also and It came out very good and has lasted for over a year now

Yeah I've seen that stuff on a VC, so I would think that you're hood would hold up to it.

This might sound like a redundant question, but would this be difficult to clean?

I ask because it's a painted surface as opposed to an actual chalkboard (unless real chalkboards are also painted).

i just used basic stuff from the crafts store. i layed down 2 coats of spray can primer and then painted on the chalk board, i live in the rainy part of the country and its held up fine, its easy to clean too just like the rest of the car. im going to a regular hood now that im getting the car resprayed, but it was deff cool while i had it, people were always surprised to learn it was chalk board haha

I would recommend getting any wax off of the surface that you are going to paint. After that use a paint scuff pad to make the surface a little ruff for the primer to stick to. Then prime and paint.
