Basic car washing 101
the hood should have a clear coat on it....
so you treat it like exterior paint...
- wash your car every week
- keep the clear coat on your car and the hood protected with a sealant of your choice...whether it be wax, sealant, or ceramic coating..keep your car coated at all times...

judging your headlights, I give you 6 months before your hood starts to yellow from neglect.

I agree with justn, and I like the look of your car but please restore those lights. You'll like it a lot more
