My sunroof is almost white instead of black from the paint fading. The paint is barely starting to fade on the trunk, and one spot on the roof. I have not investigated what it would cost to repaint. I would imagine u dont need much prep work, $100-200 maybe. Depends on if you do the prep work or not.

The clear coat is dying from the UV over the years. I guess it's hardly been waxed before?

Typically, when one part fades, the rest will follow soon enough.

A repaint of this might run from about $300-$700 at a typical paint/body shop.

Personally, I'd save the money for a full on paint job (for perhaps a few hundred more) in the summer, and in the meantime, use some polishing compound to remove the chalked clearcoat so it doesn't look quite as bad.
