Crack in Hardtop

How you guys doin, just had a quick question on what you think a good solution would be for my problem

My hardtop has a crack not to big in the rear where it there's no paint to it just the under parts, it doesn't leak or anything just looks funny, any idea on something to cover it up? a sticker or something?

thanks for any input

-Matt

Depends on if you want to do it right or not, does the crack go all the way through the top ? If so you can reinforce it from underneath with a fiberglass repair kit then sand and clean the crack out, fill it, sand it, prime it and paint it.
It's not a big deal though you should get it done before it gets too cold out. You want it to be in a warm environment for a few days while the repair kit cools and cures.

they vary in price for different strengths and applications. not hard to work with.

Most auto parts stores will have them, they either come in a can or small box with most of what you need. $10 maybe ?
