What's the best way to repair a car roof after removing a sun roof?


6 months back I had a sunroof removed & the roof repaired, but the filler over the patch in the centre of the roof has now cracked, with a few adjacent cracks running off the sides of the main crack. The crack is approx 45cm long. Before I let the guy who done the body work attempt another repair, I'd like to know how it should be done to ensure it doesn't crack again.

I think this would be better suited for an auto forum.

Most people here only roof buildings, not cars.

Good luck.

A 5 gallon bucket of roofing cement and a roll of cotton, polyester or fiberglass membrane would do the trick, but would be uglier than all heck.

And here, I thought there were no stupid questions???
