New to Me RXP-X260 First Mod and First F*UP
Friday picked up a 2012 RXP-X here, big change from the 04 GTX, so here I am taking all the decals out and when I get to the ones on the hood (Seadoo) and I use the goof off shit breaks loose taking the residual glue off, WTF happened here, will I need to paint this any way of salvaging this?

I've taken many stickers off using a heat gun to heat the area and then peeling the stickers away. If any residual glue is left, I've used Goo Gone to take that off. I have never had that happen, it seems like an issue that would be caused by what you used to wipe the residual glue. What did you use to wipe the surface?

Regular Goof Off, weird reaction on the plastic parts, no issues on the Hull. Regular cloth

may have been the cloth sticking to the left over goo gone. when i removed stickers i used goo gone as well. let it sit for a minute or tow and then used an expired credit card to scrap the glue off. cleaned with a cloth after that.
you might spray some more on there and try with a flat edge but nothing sharp.

Been here and done this mistake. I use acetone on stubborn gunk on the hull, then deep polish with no issues (afterall, this is how you prep for gelcoat repairs). However, not thinking I rubbed a spot of crap off the hood and the same thing happened as you have, being plastic not gelcoat. Luckily it wasn't so bad as yours, I realised and stopped. I used a rubbing compound and worked down the grades to super fine and then machine polished. It turned out 'ok'. You can see it if you know it's there.
Worth a shot. I don't think painting would be so good without really good prep, which with really good paint from a shop is probably gonna be more than a new hood. I'd look carefully at the maths.

Goo Gone FTW x4773
I still see some cloth fibers stuck to the residue in the 2nd pic. x2 on making sure it's not still some sticky residual adhesive. But I'd recommend Goo Gone over that Goof Off

I don't think I need a new hood, just the two sides I believe they are sold separate, I am thinking about buying the 2014 Plastics and make it all Red

That glue remover looks like it melted into the plastics.... The plastic pieces are real sensitive to anything . you could try wet sanding with a fine grit sandpaper like 2000 and finish off with 3000 and buff before you buy new
