In my humble opinion...don't. The roundish front and your perfect hood don't deserve it.

the hood is almost perfect, the paint needs attention. But i cant drive it on the freeway because the heat from the turbo builds up under the hood and gets pulled into the motor. this is my thought to solve the problem.

Would you paint them body color? I think if you left them black it might not look so good. Maybe try finding a hood that's not in that great of shape, like mine

I agree, the black might look a little tacky :/

Get some red spray paint and paint it please! Otherwise it looks great. Just get some "banner red" I think its pretty close. I wouldnt mind cutting my hood up cause its already been beat to hell. (High schoolers boots, and a large chunk of asphault) But you are brave.
