Cracks in fiberglass hood

Anyone every get cracks in your fiberglass hood?
It's a trufiber that was already on the car when I bought it. Cracks were covered by old vinyl stripes.
I'm wondering is cracking common?
Should I bother getting another fiberglass hood? Or just put a stock one back on.
Thanks.

Can you tell if they are deep? Might be a crappy paint job. Most all aftermarket hoods have to painted locally. Get it checked out.

Fiberglass is a different beast.
A reputable shop has to prep it properly.
Block sand it and make it look nice.
Use the proper paint and apply it properly.
Ive had several fiberglass hoods for the past six years
along with several friends, and I have never had problems.
