You can use shoe goo on the inside to fix the crack. Putting it over some drywall mesh tape will add strength.

Make sure the body is clean where you apply the goo.

also, drill a tiny hole at the end of the crack before applying the shoo goo to the inside, this can help prevent the crack from continuing to spread.

Tried 1 can. It works great on surfaces that are rough that the spray can penetrate into. If you spray it on a polished surface theres practically no bond at all and it just peels right up. (Sorry for the thread rob!!)

I think Shoe Goo is a mandatory item in my pit-box.
