need help on a 71 paint issue

just recently finished repainting my 71 coupe with the 2002 corvette electro blue. It looks great and the painter did a really nice job.
The problem that has come up, is that on the hood, just above the air
breather area, the paint has air pockets. The guy who painted it, took the hood back and repainted it again and while the air pockets are not as many, it is still occuring. We did paint the inside a flat black, as many other vettes that we looked, were also painted a flat black.
Could this be caused by the heat of the motor?? and if so, what would be the fix??
Any suggestions as to why or how, and what can be done would be appreciated.
Thanks JJJoseph

My guess would be that it's not air blisters, more like water or solvent trying to gas off. Take it back down to glass, bake it out, re-resin it, dry sand it back to shape, prime, bake it out, re-prime, a second prime bake out wouldn't hurt, and repaint. Sometimes that area of the hood has met with some delaminating for a small carburetor fire and the liquid gets trapped in the porosity.

================Thats my "guess" also.. !
Had the same problem with my daughters Fierro... Only cure was get it down to the bare Composit material in its case then bake the hood... prime it followed by anopthetr baking process.... that was over 10 years ago and the paint is just fine today....
