Default Body Repair

What are some good tips to make that sedan body with the cracked fender last a few more races. I know how to reinforce where the crack is but what should I do to stop it from spreading. Would drilling a small hole where the crack is keep it from spreading further?


Thanks in advance.

I have used Shoe Goo to help it from spreading in the past...
It won't last forever but, it should give you a few more runs...LOL

Try shoe goo with a piece of the nylon screen door material. I have used that and it works well.

Drywall tape works good too.

Lay some battery strapping tape over the crack from inside and coat it with Shoe Goo. It'll last the rest of the day.

Duct tape is too heavy. I use Shoe-Goo all the time and it works great. The body will last much longer!!
