Paint Cracking
It's normal for paint to crack when it's painted on fibreglass correct? Sine the fibreglass would flex so much, the paint will bound to crack sooner or later, as what I was told. Just making sure this is true. Thanks!

If you bend the plastic/urethane enough it will crack and if you crack the clear it will flake

If the surface is prepped correctly and the correct paint with the correct additives is used it, and of couse it is painted by someone who does it for a living.. should not crack at all

NO, fiberglass does not flex very much at all. wave if this body part isn't prep correctly, the paint might peel off...

I don't got any peeling, just some cracking around the corners, not many though. Oh well...

There is a paint additive that is designed for that application. It gives the paint more flexable properties in ABS & urithane applications. (Plasitcizer?) Check with your local supplier. The only other reason may be structural issues.
