The hood on one of my other cars (a 2011 Ford Focus) looks like the paint is in the early stages of crazing. It has thousands of tiny cracks (1-2 mm each) and in one area they connected into a spiderweb pattern. Is there any way to stop paint from crazing once it's started, or would I be looking at having to repaint the hood?

Pretty classical symptoms.

The only real fix is a paint job, but if you detail it and keep wax on it, you may be able to put that off for years or forever. I'm assuming that a 2011 Focus isn't required to be "show car shiny", of course.

Hey now, don't judge. If I can just get the right paint correction, I know the Concourse d'Elegance will start returning my phone calls.

Seriously, this car's paint has suffered many years of neglect, I'm surprised it's held up as well as it has.
