About our Firehawk Fiberglass SLP Hoods

Appearance & Detailing - LS1TECH - ls1tech.com
Over the years I've read some about the painting bubbling. Mine is a red 2002 Firehawk Last week I took it in to get the hood repainted. Two bubbles (1 in each of the nostrils area) and a stone chip on the hood, to be repaired/painted, blended to the fenders, ect.

The tech sanded and prepped the areas, but found 4 other bubble spots that were yet to become obvious. All were in a curved area of the hood (area below the nostrils, area under the heat extractors). And he states the bubbling is coming up from the fiberglass, not due to the factory painting.

Althought my hood is A+ perfect right now, I'm nervous about going forward if new bubbles will form over time, 5-10-15 years off?

Anyone have input or ideas about this?
