You're going to want to sand off the flakes. If it flakes and you paint it,
the paint will flake. Caution - if you sand fiberglass, take steps to avoid
breathing the dust.

Pettit Easypoxy is a one part polyurethane that goes on beautifully (with a
good, fine brush) and will last for many years. It is made for marine use,
including fiberglass boats. You can get it at your local marine store or
mail order.

Any really good paint for fiberglass isn't going to be cheap. Count on $25 -
$40 for a pint of paint and a good brush - but it will look fantastic.
