Painting the hardtop (fiberglass), a question for ppl who knows painting

Hi guys, I just bought my Mugen hardtop used not long ago, it was originally painted in silver, and I sent it to the bodyshop to have it repainted into black. So I just got it back couple days ago, and I noticed some uneven area on the hardtop, it seem as though it have been pressed against by something and left some little ditches, they are not so noticeable and not really that deep, but you can clearly seem them from certain angles, so I took the hardtop back to the body shop, and they told me that all fiberglass parts tend to do that, they could fix it for me, but those ditches may or may not pop up again, are they telling the truth?

Thanks in advance.

Good question, they are probably not willing to take on the responsibility to repaint it, there were no uneven areas that you noticed when it was Silver? If not you should get them to repaint it.

nope, there were no uneven areas, and I don't know how to make them repaint it, they keep blaming it on the fiberglass.....

dUDE.. thats a shitty situation i'd fucking probably flip out on them and DEMAND THEM to repaint it, i HIGHLY suggest you do something to that nature, try not to let them fuck you around, i hope it works out 4 you.
