Facelift for Airabelle?

The clearcoat on Airabelle's forehead and top is peeling. Rather than invest in stripping and polishing, I'm thinking of having an artist friend paint an art deco woman's face above the front windows (forehead). Her tresses would stream back along the top and flow down a bit on the sides, giving the idea of a female in motion. Which Airabelle is and does. Reactions please.

If it was well-done, maybe, but I am a plain-vanilla person, I don't even care for two-tone paint on my truck. Maybe paint the top white, as in the newer Airstreams would help in that area, and re-clearcoating the front segments that are peeling would be a stop-gap solution.
If you really want face and hair, I would suggest blonde color paint for the hair, it will reflect more heat than the darker colors.
