Painted hard top...

Hey all,
I read some of the older posts about the painted hard top, but this question wasn't answered (that I could find).
Are the painted hardtops smooth??
The regular hard top is a bit textured.
Haven't been close enough to a painted one to see!!
Thanks in advance!!

Smooth.

Finished just like the rest of the painted surfaces.

So you can't just have a body shop paint the regular hard top I guess??

To my knowledge it's the same top, just a different finish. You can either paint over the textured finish, or strip it and then paint it.

No you can paint the normal black one. You can sand down the existing paint so that a filler can stick to the fiberglass, apply the filler very sparingly(its already flat, just needs to be smooth) sand it down and repaint the top. It won't be cheap but its doable. Doing the work yourself will save money
