Where in Ontario?Funny you should mention black second gen. There are only 2 Xterras in my "area", all of Ontario, and one of them is a black 2nd gen haha But I need a grey 2nd gen!! They are rare indeed.
A black hood on an otherwise Dark Knight Armour X might look kinda cool.
Frankly, the rust looks modest (by eastern Canada standards). Time for some elbow grease maybe? RobertsPaintCare.com out of Montreal can take care of your needs from A to Z and provide lots of instructions.
Might be an idea to Krown rust or Rust Check treat the vehicle given that rust was showing up on the hood.
