I heard that carbon fiber hood's colour fade after a while by exposing it to the sun everyday.Is this true because in my country at midday the sun can make it almost 35 degree celsuis.

Depends on the manufacturer of the hood and the kind of resin used in the hood

Those are common things

Could just get it wet sanded and clear coated if you feel like doing it

that not exactly EXTREME conditions. its 95 degrees all the time in the summer in philly. its not like your live in the desert where its like 110 or something. like the paint on your car, if you maintain it properly it should be fine. if your really worried get a few coats of clear put on it.
